Abstract : A program plan for evaluating beryllium/titanium composite materials with respect to method of manufacture, v/o Be extrusion and forging reduction is presented. Coextruded Be/Ti powders, as well as coextruded Be rod with a wrought Ti matrix will be investigated. The most cost effective material/process will be fully characterized and design criteria properties determined for gas turbine fan/compressor blades applications. (Author)
