G H Logan: 263. Brazed Tube Joints for High Performance Vehicles. 1960.



This paper was presented at the Nineteenth Annual National Conference of the Society of Aeronautical Weight Engineers at Hollywood, California, May 16-19, 1960. This paper’s main discussion is directed to brazed joints for high pressure, high temperature hydraulic lines. The operating pressures and temperatures under consideration are of the order of 4000 psi and 500 degrees Fahrenheit, respectively. The application of the brazed joint design reduces vehicle weight for aircraft when compared to traditional threaded unions. The author offers that other civilian and military applications such as missiles, satellites and other space vehicles, as well as land vehicles and naval craft can benefit from similar weight savings as the aircraft industry when using the brazed joint design.
