Abstract : Initial studies performed on small laboratory-size panels indicated that Rene 41 is amenable to roll-diffusion bonding. However, completely satisfactory practice has not yet been defined. In addition, the experimentation has shown that Ti-Namel steel is a superior support material in promoting bond development in Rene 41 while SAE 1020 steel was found to be unsatisfactory. Laboratory-size titanium panels with beryllium-stiffened skin sheets were fabricated with encouraging results. Short-term plans are to continue development of both Rene 41 and titanium-beryllium composite structures. (Author)
