Abstract : The objective of the program was to evaluate hydrostatically extruded Ti-3Al-2.5V hydraulic tubing. However, 'shear-spun' tubing had to be substituted for evaluation. Tests conducted on the shear-spun tubing included rotary flexure and impulse fatigue, flaring, bending, flattening, and tensile strength. The shear-spun tubing was found to be inferior to conventionally produced tubing because of poor surface finish. (Author)
