Abstract:

The superiority of titanium alloys for use as construction material is discussed and the advantages of heat and mechanical treatment of specific titanium alloys including VT3-1, VT8 and VT14 are pointed out. Changes in treatment processes, including degree of deformation, quenching procedure, aging times and temperatures are shown to affect the mechanical properties of titanium alloys. Specific changes in mechanical properties, including tensile strength, plasticity and impact toughness are presented graphically. Optimal treatment conditions are developed for specified increases in strength and plasticity. The investigation includes comparative studies of the microstructures of alloys subjected to different mechanical and heat treatments. Author
