Introduction

This experimental campaign was performed in our department at the CTU in Prague on samples from Aircraft Industries company. These were originally manufactured by Acorn Welding to serve for component tests of welded joints for the project of a new engine bed for L 410 NG airplane. The project was abandoned, however. We proposed to test the samples in our lab under the condition that the test output will be free for any publication. The results should primarily serve as an experimental basis for diploma and PhD theses in our department, but thanks to their open-access character their wide sharing in other projects is enabled.
