Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-139
Budget: 03/25/05 - 07/25/07

New high-strength materials such as 7050 and 2297 aluminum are providing considerable life enhancement while production innovations allow components to be produced from single billets. This results in fastener holes that are normal to the short-transverse grain orientation, leading to problems with established coldworking procedures. Coldwork...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-139
Budget: 03/08/04 - 12/08/04

The split-sleeve process is a standard life enhancement procedure. Advances in material science are producing new materials (e.g., 7050 and 2297) that are replacing legacy alloys (2024 and 7075). However, coldwork technology has not kept up with material advances. Coldworking the new aluminum alloys, particularly in the short-transverse grain...
