Abstract:

A successful cold forming procedure was established for B120 VCA Ti alloy extruded Tee sections. The internal Tee stiffeners were installed and tack welded into cylinders with 0.232- and 0.330-in.-thick walls. Welding parameters and mechanical properties of the butt weld are reported for cylinders with 0.232- and 0.405-in.-thick walls. Welding and cracking difficulties with one Closure Adaptor Assembly are described. Cracking and low ductility difficulties on various weldments are discussed. Author
