Abstract:

A method of flattening 0.125-in. Ti-7Al-12Zr sheet between 2 in. thick steel plates was developed. Preliminary data from the annealing temperature survey showed that the ductility of annealed 0.040-in. sheet after thermal exposure was 13.6, and after creep exposure, 11.6. The first 0.020-in. sheet was finish hot-rolled in production and tested. The results showed that 0.012-in. had to be removed from the sheet to achieve satisfactory properties after thermal exposure. One-half of the scheduled number of production size 0.063-in. sheets was rolled to final gage. Author
