The report summarizes the findings of several investigations into the synthesis of product shape, metallurgical structure, and mechanical properties by suitable control of metallurgical processing variables. Two of the most significant achievements are Additional work on the ring compression test has considerable enhanced its usefulness to the point where it can now be used for the quantitative determination of not only friction, but also the dynamic flow properties of metals under typical metalworking conditions. It can also now be used as an accurate technique for the tonnage calibration of both large and small forge presses It has been shown that significant strength improvements can be achieved for alpha and alpha 2 beta titanium alloys by processing at temperatures such that the material is in the full beta range and then water quenching immediately after deformation.
