Experience with the Use of MAGNESIUM in AIRCRAFT 440150

THE tremendous increase in the production of magnesium and the greater incentive to utilize it in reducing the weight of combat airplanes has required information regarding it which is not now covered in the literature or technical handbooks.
In this paper, Mr. Mathes makes available generally some of the more recent information on magnesium which has resulted, in many cases, from questions raised by the aircraft industry itself.
The specific subjects covered are availability, choice of alloys, surface treatment and painting, stress corrosion, joining methods, service experience, effect of gunfire, and primary structures.
