MATERIALS RESEARCH IN SUPPORT OF SUPERCONDUCTING MACHINERY
Results of six months research are reported. Subjects include magneto-thermal conductivity, thermal conductivity, composites, elastic properties, fracture toughness, fatigue, and tensile. All measurements include the temperature range 4 to 300k. Materials examined are those either presently being used in superconducting machinery or considered for use in future prototypes. Material classes include stainless steels, inconels, titanium alloys, and composites. Special results include; the thermal conductivity in a magnetic field is considerably lower than would be predicted; a comprehensive review of glass-reinforced composite behavior at low temperatures is included; the elastic moduli for 12 engineering alloys from 4 to 300K are reported; and fracture toughness and fatigue crack growth rate data on AISI 304, AISI 316, A286, Ti--5AL--4V and Ti--6AL--2.5Sn at 4, 76 and 300K have been measured.
