ULTRASONIC WELDING OF ALUMINUM AND ALUMINUM ALLOY MATERIALS
Includes all amendments and changes through Cancellation Notice 1, December 5, 1995
Additional Comments: CNCL NO S/S
This standard established the requirements and procedures for joining assemblies by the ultrasonic welding process for the following types of aluminum sheets and classes of weld joint classification:
Two types of aluminum sheet shall be covered:
Type I - Alclad Sheet Type II - Non-Clad or Bare Sheet
Three classes of welded joints will be treated:
Class A - A welded joint, whose failure during any operating condition would cause loss of the equipment or system or one of its major components, loss of control, unintentional release or inability to release any armament store, failure of gun installation components; or which may cause significant injury to occupants of manned systems. Class B - A welded joint whose failure would reduce the overall strength of the equipment or system or preclude the intended functioning or use of equipment. Class C - A welded joint which is considered non-critical and for which no stress analysis is considered.
The class of joint used in a welded assembly will be called out on engineering drawings.
