Abstract:

This investigation was undertaken in order to determine the metallurgical factors which affect the ballistic properties of titanium, and to develop base materials with increased ballistic resistance. The use of the dual hardness principle was investigated in an attempt to use the intermetallic compound TiNi as one component in a roll bonded alloy.
