Abstract : This report presents the major activities associated with the subject contract. The Aeromechanical Fastener Requirements Group (AMFRG) composed of the Air Force, Navy, Army, prime aerospace manufacturers, and fastener manufacturers was reorganized in 1976 to efficiently prepare and maintain MIL-STD-1515, Fastener Systems for Aerospace Applications. Twice yearly meetings were arranged, attended, technical support provided, and minutes prepared and distributed. MIL-STD-1515 was completely revised and two change notices to the revised document were completed and published. Research programs involving stress corrosion, fatigue properties of recess head fasteners, and removal torque measurements of fasteners installed in various aircraft were completed during the contract term.
