Redux Bonding a French Fighter Aircraft

Redux Bonding a French Fighter Aircraft IN a recent issue of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING Mr R. H. T. Harper, of Messrs de Havilland Aircraft Co. Ltd., gave an account of the design considerations which led his company into using composite wood and metal spars for the Hornet singleseater fighter. Such a method of construction was made possible by the development of the Redux process for bonding metal to wood by Messrs Aero Research Limited, Duxford, and it was the first of a number of advanced designs made possible by this new process. They have already been described at some length in a number of articles in the technical press see Bibliography, and it is only necessary to state here that when using the Redux process for bonding metal to wood the strength of the bond is always greater than that of the wood itself even at 100 deg. C., and that the process can equally well be applied to the gluing of metals to metals e.g. see the description of the use of Redux on the de Havilland Dove given in The Aeroplane, September 20, 1946. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

IN a recent issue of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING Mr R. H. T. Harper, of Messrs de Havilland Aircraft Co. Ltd., gave an account of the design considerations which led his company into using composite wood and metal spars for the Hornet singleseater fighter. Such a method of construction was made possible by the development of the Redux process for bonding metal to wood by Messrs Aero Research Limited, Duxford, and it was the first of a number of advanced designs made possible by this new process. They have already been described at some length in a number of articles in the technical press see Bibliography, and it is only necessary to state here that when using the Redux process for bonding metal to wood the strength of the bond is always greater than that of the wood itself even at 100 deg. C., and that the process can equally well be applied to the gluing of metals to metals e.g. see the description of the use of Redux on the de Havilland Dove given in The Aeroplane, September 20, 1946.
