Abstract:

The Navy is using, or is considering to use, particulate materials in a variety of applications throughout the air, surface, and submarine fleets. The applications range from aircraft engine turbine disks, which are needed to meet performance requirements, to direct powder sprayed parts, which greatly decrease manufacturing costs. This technical memorandum will discuss many of the applications and the reasoning behind their selection, as well as the direction of future technology.
