Description

The aggressive environment encountered by the high speed civil transport (supersonic) aircraft (HSCT) places severe requirements on the types of materials used in its construction. The state-of- the-art materials available to the commercial aerospace industry will not meet these severe environmental requirements. New materials have been evaluated that will meet these severe environmental requirements. One such material is the super plastic formed/diffusion bonded (SPF/DB) titanium. Structures with this material have been fabricated to be used on the HSCT aircraft. Because the HSCT is a commercial program, the FAA requires that nondestructive evaluation techniques must be developed for the inspection of these structures.
