This report describes the findings of a study to determine the state of the art for high-temperature 1000-3000 F fatigue and static testing of full-scale aerospace vehicle structures and structural components. Facilities, test equipment, instrumentation and test methods currently used by government, industry, and research organizations were surveyed and their capabilities evaluated. The purpose of this survey was to determine what state of the art techniques, equipment, and transducers are available for use in high-temperature structural testing, and to determine if there are any vacuum and cryogenic facilities available which could be adapted for use in high-temperature testing of full-scale aerospace vehicle structures and components containing liquid hydrogen. Recommendations are made for development work in order to establish or enhance the basic capabilities required to meet these needs. Keywords Test facilities.
- Research and Experimental Aircraft
- Ground Support Systems and Facilities for Space Vehicles
