Development of a testing technique for the yield strength determination of 5 inch steel cartridge cases
Blasko, James A.
MetadataShow full item record
The standard Navy method for determining the yield strength of 5 inch steel cartridge cases is shown to overestimate the actual circumferential yield strength of the case by about 40 percent. An expanded ring testing apparatus was developed to measure the actual yield strength.

A comparison of fillet weld strength and U.S. Navy design specifications for non-combatant ships and the economic implications McCabe, William Carl (Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978-05);There is a great interest in the strength of fillet welds because the welding operation accounts for about 30% of the labor cost in planning and constructing ship hulls. One way to reduce welding cost is to reduce the ...
