Mechanical properties under static and dynamic loads, fatigue characteristics, fracture toughness, high-temperature strength, corrosion resistance, and physical and thermophysical properties of pressed alloy V in state T1 are studied.

The alloy belongs to the group of aluminum high-strength deformable heat-hardenable alloys based on the Al-Cu-Li-Mg system with additives of Ag, Zr, and Sc.

Our department brings together outstanding undergraduate and graduate programs with world-class expertise in energy, propulsion, autonomous systems, biomechanics and manufacturing. This cross-cutting environment and new partnerships have resulted in levels of student awards, publications and research funding that place us among the nation’s elite mechanical and aerospace.

A commercial spray-cast aluminum alloy, having a composition of AM % Zn% Mg% Cu% Zr, was processed by equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) to give an ultrafine-grained. This book is, in essence, sixteen years in the making. First attempted to compile a history of the Soviet space program in author put together a rough chronology of the main events.

A decade later, while living on a couch in a college friend's apartment, he began writing what would be a short history of the Soviet lunar landing program.

Automated sensing and feedback control should be an increasing part of NASA's research program, capitalizing on smart structure advances, including distributed sensing and strain-actuated materials to achieve structural and acoustic treatment weight reductions in a variety of potential applications.

These may encompass, for example, stabilizing. The Latest in Waterborne Technology for the Aerospace Industry LAS are proud to announce we are the new distributor for Stewart System products for the UK, Europe and North Africa.

This is a great addition to our range of products. This study presents the results of tests involving determining quantities used to describe fracture toughness of a heat-treated AA aluminum alloy applied in, among other things, constructing American military amphibians.

These quantities were determined using the J–R curve method for two temperature values, K and 77 K. The low temperature was provided by putting the tested. Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA’s) single Agency Aerospace Technology (AST) classification system.

AST positions include professional, scientific and engineering positions in the group occupational series that are directly related to the Agency’s aerospace.

alloy Table 1. Aerospace Aluminum Alloys Engineering Properties Lithium is the chemical alloying element which most effectively reduces the density of Al alloys. Al-Li alloys, with as little as 2 to 3 wt% lithium reduce the weight by about 10%—if stiffness increase is considered, then the effective weight reduction is 15%.

This technology solves that problem. While e-beam wire deposition is of interest for rapid prototyping of metal parts in space, it is also of intense interest for industrial welding and fabrication in a range of applications, from small components to large aerospace structures.

Variable-Power Handheld Laser Torch. Future spacecraft landing on distant planets may have improved margins of safety due to innovative metal alloys being developed at Kennedy Space Center. Paul Nieuwenhuis, Peter Wells, in The Automotive Industry and the Environment, Monocoque construction.

The history of the monocoque or unibody is initially to some extent separate in that the first Budd applications still use a separate body and chassis (Nieuwenhuis and Wells, 72).However, Budd pressed steel technology suddenly made this the obvious next step in vehicle. Review of NASA's Aerospace Technology Enterprise: An Assessment of NASA's Aeronautics Technology Programs contains the committee's assessment of the Aeronautics Technology Programs.

Chapter 1 presents a top-level assessment, and Chapters 2 through 4 provide the assessments of the Vehicle Systems Program, the Airspace Systems Program, and the. Aerospace Education Services Program specialists, who have successfully used them in countless workshops and student programs around the United States.

The activities encourage students to explore the nature of flight, and experience some real-life applications of mathematics, science, and technology. Aerospace Technology + Innovation = Award.
