The mechanical properties of forged Ti-6Al-4V forged in the conventional manner and at temperatures above the alpha-betabeta transus were investigated. Tensile, fatigue, stress rupture, and fracture properties of the optimum beta-forged material were determined. It was shown that the material forged in the beta range exhibits superior room temperature fracture and fatigue properties while the other mechanical properties are not affected. At 600F the fatigue, stress rupture, and tensile properties of the conventional forged and beta-forged material are the same. Author
