Author and Affiliation:
Young, C. P., Jr.(NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA, United States)
Abstract: This lecture presents the results of fastener load and retention systems tests which were carried out as a part of the cryogenic models technology development program a the NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC). Various design concepts for the National Transonic Facility (NTF) developmental and production models are discussed. A number of NTF models are described with emphasis on materials used, uniqueness of design and design drivers. Design and fabrication experience is presented in terms of the primary thermal and mechanical considerations required for design as well as fabrication. Cost considerations are addressed in terms of factors influencing costs for NTF models and cost data comparisons which are taken from both NASA Langley and industry experience.
