This memorandum represents a combined effort by the U. S. Naval Applied Science Laboratory, Brooklyn, New York, and the Defense Metals Information Center to summarize new information on welding thick Ti plate. Thick plate of Ti continues to be of interest to the aerospace and defense industries for possible use in submersibles, armored vehicles, large space boosters, high-speed aircraft, and for pressure vessels. This memorandum generally is limited to information on welding Ti plate that is 1 at least 1 in. thick and 2 that is not covered by DMIC Report 185, The Status and Properties of Titanium Alloys for Thick Plate, June 14, 1963. The general requirements for welding Ti are not repeated here, since they are well documented in references mentioned in the inroduction to the memorandum. Sections have been prepared to cover material developments, welding-process developments, weld properties, and residual welding stresses. Author
