WL 3.1364 specification allawables

WL 3.1364 specification allawables

WL 3.1364 specification allawables


can anybody help me please and say, where can I find design allowable (including A-basis) for the 2024-O according to German specification WL3.1364?
I know for sure that there are no links to WL-series specifications in MMPDS and ESDU.
Thank you in advance!

RE: WL 3.1364 specification allawables

Had an issue with German specs last year ...
From what i understand .. 3.1364 is related to 2024 clad O => (T42)/ T3
O material (annealed) is never used in aircraft 'as is' .. it is commonly treated to -T42 or rolled to -T3
design specs for either temper are universally available .. See ASTM B209M spec for O - condition Strength & Yield values.
why would you require these values ?

RE: WL 3.1364 specification allawables

why would you want design allowables for O-condition ? This is "only" used in the sheet metal shop to form the part. The formed part is then heat treated (typically to T42).

Surprisingly there are properties in Wiki !?

another day in paradise, or is paradise one day closer ?

RE: WL 3.1364 specification allawables

If I recall correctly O states for heat treatable aluminum tend to have maximum specified yield rather than minimum which would tend to make standard design allowables a bit hard to define.

Your best bet could to use premium selection, which would give you a "S" value.

RE: WL 3.1364 specification allawables

wonder if it ages at RT ?

another day in paradise, or is paradise one day closer ?
