$99,997.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator:
Karthik Nagarathnam, Senior Materials Scientist
Abstract:
In response to OSD/NAVY's need for landing gear component applications, We propose to develop advanced high strength steels using CDC compaction manufacturing. Common materials used are 4340 steel, 300M, and AerMet 100. AerMet 100 has superior material properties to 4340 and 300M. Landing gear… More
