Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) - Munitions Directorate

The roots of the Air Force Research Laboratory Munitions Directorate (AFRL/RW) can be traced to air armament efforts initiated at Eglin Field during the early stages of World War II. Since this early start, the development of high-speed jet aircraft has outpaced the development of conventional air...

Joining of tungsten alloys

A process of making useful shapes by joining of tungsten alloys. Joining of tungsten heavy alloys which are alloys typically made from W—Ni—Fe is used. These alloys are typically manufactured by liquid phase sintering. This leads to difficulty in producing large length to diameter ratio parts that...
