Abstract : Discussed briefly are some of the problems which were encountered in the riveting and welding of D16T and V95T high-strength aluminum aircraft alloys, and which led to the development of the glue-welding technique used extensively in the construction of AN-24 aircraft (fuselage - 67 percent glue-welded). An 11-month comprehensive testing program is described and the successful use of FL-4S adhesive, cured 7 hrs at 140 degrees, is mentioned. The glue-welding technique is described in general terms and the subsequent use of KLN-1 and VK-1MS epoxy-thiokol resins (polymerized at 145-150 degrees centigrade) is reported. (Author)
