Abstract : This report is in four volumes. Volume I is the committee's assessment of the state of net shape technology for aerospace applications based on briefings and discussion at the workshops. Report is an assessment of current and possible applications of net shape technologies by the Air Force, including: precision forging of alloys, powder metallurgy, structural ceramics, superplastic forming, diffusion bonding, vapor deposited coatings, etc.; and composites, including organic matrix composites, metal matrix composites, ceramic and carbon matrix composites in the manufacture of aircraft components. Report includes road maps of research and development efforts in performance and manufacturing technologies and resource allocation.
