Shear Strength of Several Alloys at Liquid-Hydrogen Temperatures
The increased application of cryogenic fluids in the rocket and missile industry has increased the demand for information on the basic design properties of the materials in the extreme low-temperature range. A large amount of effort has been expended during the past few years, by many researchers, to obtain physical and mechanical properties of prospective or actually utilized materials. Most of this effort has been devoted to obtaining tensile properties: ultimate and yield strength, elongation, area reduction, and, in certain cases, notch sensitivity. A limited amount of effort has been directed toward the physical properties, principally thermal conductivity and thermal expansion.
