Engineering property comparisons have been made for plate material of the newly developed aluminium alloy 2324-T39 and the widely used alloy 2024-T351. The properties considered were: tensile strength, fracture toughness, notched fatigue strength, and the resistance to fatigue crack propagation under both constant amplitude and flight simulation...

Several simple crack stopping methods were evaluated In fatigue crack propagation tests on 2024-T3 Alclad sheet specimens. After precracklng until a crack of 40 mm was obtained crack stoppers were Installed and the fatigue test was continued. Crack stoppers Installed In stop holes were: a blind rivet, a hard driven rivet, a heavily tightened...

Due to the development of servo hydraulic fatigue testing machines, fatigue tests under realistic loading conditions have become possible. In these tests, standardized load sequences can be applied. The paper describes the main properties of such sequences, including TWIST and FALSTAFF. Various examples of application of these sequences are...

Flight simulation fatigue crack propagation tests with gust spectrum loading were carried out on 2024-T3/carbon-epoxy, 7475-T76l/carbon-epoxy and Ti-6Al-4V/carbon-epoxy laminates with nominal weight savings of -30% as compared to equivalent 2024-T3 panels. The performance of the 2024-T3/carbon-epoxy laminates was much superior to those of the...

2024-T3, 2048-T851, 7075-T6 and 7475-T761 aluminium alloy sheets were compared for fatigue crack propagation resistance under manoeuvre spectrum and constant amplitude loading. For manoeuvre spectrum loading 7475-T761 was superior overall, and this superiority is most probably due to superior toughness of this alloy. In more detail, 2024-T3 was...

The influence of bending-torsional coupling on the buckling load of general orthotropic, midplane symmetric and elastic plates has been studied. First this effect has been analysed for the case of infinitely long plate strips, resulting in approximate analytical solutions, which can be presented graphically for the entire range of the elastic...

The influence of previous corrosion on the fatigue life was investigated. It was foimd that a slight corrosive attack could drastically reduce the fatigue life. The damaging effect of corrosion was greater for the alloy AA 7050 than for AZ 74.61. It could be established that fatigue cracks initiated from various corrosion pits. A second series...

A second series of exploratory acoustic fatigue tests using a shaker. A second series of exploratory acoustic fatigue tests was carried out, again employing simple specimens mounted on a shaker. Strain measurements were compared with calculations. Crack growth initiated by a central notch was observed. A comparison was made between three types...

Fatigue tests under flight-simulation loading have been performed on unnotched Alclad 2024-T3, anodised 2.0 mm thick sheet specimens, manufactured according to several machine-shop processes applied in the air craft industry. From the results it appears that milling is preferable to stamping. Rounding off the edges is also advantageous. The...

A finite element model has been developed, which incorporates the bending-torsional coupling effect, as it occurs in general orthotropic, midplane symmetric, elastic plates in order to analyse its influence on the buckling behaviour of such plates. Some results have been compared with known exact and approximate solutions.

Fatigue tests on unidirectional Ca/ep composite material have been performed to investigate whether previous fatigue loading did influence the residual static strength. Residual strength tests were carried out on (0, ± 45)2s and (± 45)2s laminates, while for the (O, ± 45)2s laminate the influence of previous tensile fatigue loading on the...

Flight-simulation tests based on a standardized gust load spectrum were carried out in normal air, very dry air and salt water. Specimen thicknesses were t = 2 mm and t = 10 mm, mean stress in flight was 70 or 55 MN/m². In all cases a significant effect of the environment was found. Fatigue lives for t = 10 ram were much shorter than for t = 2...

Residual strength tests have heen performed, on 300 mm wide centrecracked panels of various thicknesses, at room temperature and at -50 C. During the tests, stable crack growth was filmed and recorded with the electric potential method. Fracture toughness was determined using the method of Feddersen.

Flight-simulation tests were carried out on sheet specimens notched "by an open hole (Kt = 2.66). The material was 2024-T3 in three conditions; Alclad, bare and chemically milled. The crack initiation period and the crack propagation period were considerably shorter for the Alclad material. The significance of the cladding, both for constant...
