Abstract:

Vanadium alloy development studies and detailed property evaluations of sheet stock from 100-lb ingots of selected vanadium alloys are reported. Experimental alloys based mainly on the vanadiumniobium system were fabricated to 0.050-in. sheet which was generally very workable and weldable, and had density-corrected strengths superior to those of most niobium alloys up to 2400 F. The strongest of the highly ductile compositions were based on V-60Nb with 1 to 10 wt.- additions of reactive and refractory metals in combination with up to 0.1 wt.- carbon. The less ductile V-40Nb-30Ta-1Hf alloy had the highest 2400 F tensile strength, 25,400 psi. Author
