Abstract : This report describes mechanical property data collected in support of a fan blade analysis model. The development of the blade model is part of a foreign object damage (FOD) study of jet engine fan blades. Use of the properties in the model allows one to evaluate potential fan blade materials. Part A of this report contains a discussion of the mechanical property tests conducted on two metallic materials: 410 stainless steel and 8Al-1Mo-1V titanium. Part B of the report contains a discussion of mechanical property tests conducted on the two composite components of a hybrid composite blade: boron/2024 aluminum and stainless steel wire mesh. Static, quasi-static and dynamic tensile tests were conducted on the metallic materials because (1) studies indicate that metallic mechanical properties exhibit strain rate dependence and (2) tests conducted on full scale blades show that various locations on the fan blades load at different rates. The mechanical properties measured include Young's Modulus (when obtainable), Poisson's ratio (when obtainable), the yield strength, the ultimate strength, and the ultimate strain. The density of the materials was also measured.
