The Fatigue Behavior of Certain Alloys in the Temperature Range from Room Temperature to -423°F
Recent developments have increased the need for knowledge of the fatigue behavior of materials at cryogenic temperatures. Scarcely any data are available on the fatigue behavior of engineering metals to temperatures as low as -423°F* In order to obtain data which would aid in the fatigue design of cryogenic missile components, AFBMD and WADD sponsored the fatigue study described below. Although the program is still in progress, the data obtained so far are being presented in abbreviated form because of their potential interest arising from current applications and the dearth of available Information on cryogenic fatigue.
