Ti-6Al-4V plates were spin-forged into hemispheres so that the effect of the spinning process on plastic strain anisotropy could be examined. Spinning temperatures were varied from 400 to 1725F, and plastic strains in the longitudinal and transverse directions were measured. The plastic strain anistropy and texture developed by spin-forging were similar to those produced by other forms of processing and resulted in texture strengthening at low spinning temperatures.
