Abstract:

Research was performed to evaluate the sealant properties of elastomeric materials under simulated in-service conditions. Unique equipment has been designed and fabricated for the evaluation of a variety of joint configurations. The equipment consists primarily of a biaxial stress machine with programmable environmental exposure during evaluation. Variables include frequency and amplitude of the independently driven and recorded strains, temperature, pressure and fuelfuel vapor exposure. Specimens can be strained torsionally and longitudinally during thermal and fuel fill cycles to simulate actual flight conditions. Author
