Abstract : The materials used in the program are 2 steels, MBMC ?1 and super tricent. Drawings of the prototype cases as well as the bonded uniaxial and biaxial stress specimens are shown. Test results are presented for the first group of tensile specimens having a bonded lap joint. Average joint strength for the group was 15,860 lb per peripheral inch (width), somewhat above the target joint strength of 15,000 established for the prototype bonded end ring case. A curve is drawn showing the hydrotest pressures for various size missile cases a bonded joint of this strength will withstand. (Author)
