Abstract:

A method for fabricating an improved titanium alloy composite consisting of a least one high strengthhigh stiffness filament or fiber embedded in an alpha-beta titanium alloy matrix which comprises the steps of providing a rapidly-solidified foil made of a rich metastable beta titanium alloy, fabricating a preform consisting of alternating layers of the rapidly-solidified foil and the filamentary material, and applying heat and pressure to consolidate the preform, wherein consolidation is carried out at a temperature below the beta-transus temperature of the alloy.
