The Air Force is involved in repairing high technology aerospace materials for gas turbine engines. The complex metallurgical and physical property requirements of current aerospace materials place emphasis on adequate inspection and repair procedures of jet engine components. Many of these components operate at or near the material design constraints and require accurate forecasting of component life expectancies and careful monitoring of component condition. The large unit cost and extending procurement lead times of these components leads to development of repair and refurbishment technology to permit salvaging of the items. The need for material performance package will be explored and examples of high technology repair procedures given.
