Abstract : The methods developed for fabrication of Be sheet composite structures are described. Descriptions and performance evaluation are included for a variety of panels fabricated under the contract consisting of Be load bearing panels and porous ceramic heat shields developed to withstand temperatures in excess of 3000 F. Concepts are outlin d defining application of Be-ceramic composites to aerospace vehicle structures. Be sheet fabrication methods and tooling are described and include such processes as cutting, forming, chem-milling, and brazing. Be sheet faces were brazed to a variety of superalloy and stainless steel honeycomb cores. Three basic porous ceramic foams were developed in the heat shield: Al2O3, ZrO2, and SiO2. (Author)
