Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 11)


The purpose of this program was to evaluate the mechanical properties of electroformed nickel in order to determine its suitability for aerospace structural applications at room and cryogenic temperatures. In order to understand the interest in electroformed nickelj it is well to quickly review the electroforming process and some of Its attributes.
