Abstract:

The memorandum reviews selected information on new developments in titaniu metallurgy from June through August, 1961. Major interest was centered around the Ti-13V-11Cr-3Al all-beta alloy and the Ti-8Al-1Mo-1V, Ti-7Al-12Zr, and Ti-5Al-5Sn-5Zr super alpha alloys. Other Ti-ALLOY GRADES, PARTICULARLY THOSE IN THE DOD sheet rolling program, still receive a large proportion of the research effort. Researches toward improving the fabrication, joining, and forming processes generally utilize these alloys. Very little information on the development of new Tialloy compositions is available.
