When bulging occurred in mortar tubes made of British I steel during elevated-temperature test firing, a test program was formulated to evaluate the high-temperature properties (at 540 to 650 deg C, or 1000 to 1200 deg F) of the British I steel and of several alternative alloys including a maraging steel (18% Ni, grade 250), a vanadium-modified 4337 gun steel (4337V), H19 tool steel, and high-temperature alloys Rene 41, Inconel 718, and Udimet 630. All the alloys evaluated had been used in mortar tubes previously or were known to meet the estimated minimum yield strength. The alloys fall in...
