AIR1529A - Flexure Testing of Hydraulic Tubing Joints and Fittings by Planar Resonant Vibration (Free-Free Beam)

Details
Document Number: AIR1529A
Revision Number: A
Title
Flexure Testing of Hydraulic Tubing Joints and Fittings by Planar Resonant Vibration (Free-Free Beam)
Scope
This Aerospace Information Report (AIR) establishes flexure test procedures to determine and classify the fatigue strengths of reconnectable or permanent hydraulic tube joints. The procedure is intended for conducting flexure tests of fittings and joints for hydraulic tubing materials such as AMS 5561 steel, AMS 4944 titanium and MIL-T-7081 aluminum alloy, mounted as free-free resonant beams. Of particular advantage are the inherent simplicity of test setup, minimum restraint from a test fixture, low power requirements, short test duration and ease of varying stress level.
