The requirements contained herein are intended for those standards that are promulgated by national standards organizations and used in the aerospace industry. These technical data include narrative text, tables and various graphic data which comprise the standards. Both interface control and interface definitions are covered in this specification. The internal architectures of the computer facilities of either the providers or the users are not constrained by this interchange specification. Rather, neutral formats and transmitting media are defined in order to enable more cost-effective ways to distribute information for computer users than by sending printed documents. This method for digital delivery of aerospace standards is intended to allow the users to display and maintain standards on current computer systems in addition to producing hard copy comparable to existing printed standards.
This specification covers a titanium alloy in the form of sheet, strip, and plate. These products have been used typically for parts requiring a combination of weldability, ductility, and good notch-toughness down to –423 °F (–253 °C), but usage is not limited to such applications. Certain processing procedures and service conditions may cause these products to become subject to stress corrosion cracking; ARP982 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
This specification covers quality assurance sampling and testing procedures used to determine conformance to applicable specification requirements of wrought corrosion and heat-resistant steel and alloy products and of forging stock.
