T B Parsonage, C K Dorn: 1848. Beryllium Application and Engineering. 1988.



In the design of complex structures, material selection must be based upon a variety of characteristics such as strength, fabricability, and the interaction between materials within the system. When designers select beryllium, it is often as a result of its unique combination of properties which can be more important than the value of any individual property. This paper describes those unique properties and how they relate to the successful use of beryllium in mass and stiffness critical applications.
