Abstract : The main effort on Phase IV to date has been directed towards arriving at a forging design suitable for use on the balance of the program. A search for such a forging and a review of prints received as a result of earlier inquiries were not rewarding in that no shapes were found which were suitable without extensive modification. A flame shield forging to be produced from sintered unalloyed Mo was redesigned to fit contract requirements and submitted for approval. Subsequent to approval of the above design closed impression forging dies for blocking and for finishing operations were designed and are being machined. The material required to complete Phase IV has been forged to an intermediate stage where it will be held until dies and forging blank geometry have been checked out. A number of blank shapes are being considered and will be evaluated when forging dies have been machined and heat treated. (Author)
