Abstract : Manufacture of the tail cone was initiated, and delivery of the raw impact extrusions is expected during September. The initial tail cone had a wall thickness of 0.24 in., and since it demonstrated more than adequate strength, an investigation was begun to determine if the weight could be reduced further. Tests on a group of 10 tail cones with a 0.21 in.-wall indicate adequate strength. (Author)
