Abstract : This report covers the second phase of a five-phase program to develop a standardization handbook for the repair of bonded aircraft structure. Tasks included the standardization of small repairs that are now covered by the various aircraft technical orders as well as general instructions for large repair work, including component rebuilding. Work completed in phase II included the selection of standard procedures for small area repairs. Considerable progress was made in evaluating adhesives and surface preparation methods for bond strength and durability. At the conclusion of phase II, a workshop was held at Dayton with military repair depot personnel and industry representatives. Inputs on key program items were received, which will establish direction for future program tasks. (Author)
