    Abstract

    Boron/aluminum is specified for tube truss members for the mid-fuselage of the Space Shuttle Orbiter being produced by General Dynamics under contract to Rockwell International. In all, 243 tubes have been installed on each of the first three Orbiters to serve as main frame and rib truss struts, frame stabilizing braces, and nose landing gear drag brace support struts.
