  2. Bulk Non-Equilibrium Materials by Shockwave Consolidation

    SBC: TXL GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF141006

    ABSTRACT: Phase 1 research will validate an approach for material synthesis that combines mechanical alloying with explosive powder consolidation to produce bulk materials with novel properties. The main advantage to the approach is that it can be applied to diverse material systems, including the creation of alloys with otherwise insoluble constituents. An additional advantage is that it has a ...

  3. Residual Stress Determination for Cold Expanded Holes

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: AF141207

    ABSTRACT: Cold working has been used for holes in aircraft structure to extend fatigue life for decades. This procedure can be used as a terminating action or as an inspection interval extension. To have confidence in the process, the Air Force needs an inspection tool that can conclusively determine of the cold work process has been applied to a hole, and if the results are within process specif ...
