AbstractNot Available Aluminum-Beryllium alloys (A1BeMet) are binary alloys that combine the high modulus and low density characteristics of beryllium with the fabrication and mechanical property behavior of aluminum. These characteristics are extremely desirable for advanced satellite and space applications. Cost($2000/lb) of the alloys has been the main drawback to their use. By combining thin A1BeMet sheets to a core of conventional high strength aluminum alloy by the use of explosive welding, structural beams and honeycombed sheets can then be fabricated at reasonable costs. .040 thick sheets of A1BeMet will be bonded to .125 7050 aluminum alloy and then used as face sheets joined to a 7050 aluminum honeycomb core. I-Beams will also be fabricated from .040 A1BeMet explosion bonded to two sides of 2 x 2 wrought 7050 aluminum bar.
