Abstract:

The production of beryllium substructure was undertaken as part of the Carbon-Carbon Design Program CCDP. Because of a change in beryllium requirements, the program was delayed and then redirected. A study of machining and etching of internal and external threads was started, and was terminated prior to the evaluation of parts produced. Four cylinders and one hollow cone frustum were made by direct hot isostatic pressing of electrolytic grade beryllium powder. Mechanical properties of the cylinders are reported and met the requirements established for the material.
