Abstract:

Results of delayed-fracture tests on an IMET-4 machine for VT6S, VT6, and VT14M Ti alloys, for a Ti alloy with low Al and Zr content, and for a Ti alloy with 3.7-percent Al. The fracture behavior and brittle properties of these alloys are compared. The mechanism involved is discussed noting the role of intergrain forces and absorbed gases. Author
