Abstract

Accelerated activity in the development of hypersonic aircraft and spacecraft has created new problems of materials testing. Testing equipment must be capable of simulating higher temperatures as well as severe thermal cycling superimposed upon the cyclic application of stress. Among the materials under study requiring this testing equipment are the heavy refractory metals such as tungsten and molybdenum, which are capable to operating at very high temperatures while maintaining strength.
