Abstract:

Static tension tests were conducted on composite bolted repair samples. The purpose of these tests was to compare experimental results with strains predicted by the Composite Bolted Repair Analysis program. This program was developed to predict elevated temperature 0-250 F strains. This TM addresses only the oven and instrumentation designs. The oven was designed to be integrated into FIBECs 100 Kip Instron static test frame and meet environmental requirements. The instrumentation included five thermocouples to confirm the specimens were in the required environment, twenty-seven strain gauge channels to measure the strains, and one load cell channel ranging from five thousand pounds to fifty-thousand pounds.
