Abstract:

Typical airframe structures, fuselage frames, wing leading edge, bleed air ducts, tail cone, shear panels and compression panels of Ti-4Al-3Mo-1V and Ti-13V-11Cr-3Al were subjected to test loads in increasing increments of 100 degrees from room temperature to maximum temperatures of 800 F and 900 F, depending on the part. Riveted and resistance welded construction was evaluated in the fuselage frame and wing leading edge.
