..., testing, and inspection. The crack indications were found only on one side of the boss and on the lower portion of the hot-spun dome region. The metallographic specimens revealed triangular voids and severe intergranular cracks. The cracks displayed the glossy surfaces typical of melted and resolidified...

... and unzipping of the chamber dome, burn-through of the dome, and shearing of bayonet locking lugs. Factors identified as significant in the failures are the pressure developed in the chamber and internal corrosion of the chamber in an environment that can produce stress-corrosion cracking. The interior...

.... Chemical analysis of the cracked metal showed a slightly higher level of carbon than in the component that did not crack. X-ray diffraction studies of material from the fractured dome showed a very low level of retained austenite, and chemical analysis showed a slightly higher content of carbon...

..., about 1.2 m (4 ft) in diameter and 3 m (10 ft) long, consisted of a dome section, two cylindrical segments, and an aft-adapter section. The girth-weld joint was prepared as a 90° single-V-groove joint with a 1-mm (0.040-in.) root face; the wall thickness of the vessel was 4.5 mm (0.175 in.). The parts...
