Titanium and Intermetallics Overview


The Interdisciplinary Research Center in Materials for High Performance Applications has research programs in the areas of TiAl-based alloys, the development of β titanium alloys, and the fatigue of titaniumbased alloys and composites. These programs cover melting, atomization, spray-forming, casting, thermomechanical processing, joining, alloy development, and property assessment; in all cases, large experimental programs are backed up with modeling.
