Abstract

We study the influence of alloying with Al, Zr, and Si on the structure and mechanical properties (including the modulus of elasticity) of cast and deformed alloys of the Ti-B system. It is shown that, by optimizing the compositions of titanium alloys subjected to combined silicoboride hardening and additionally alloyed with aluminum, it is possible to get the modulus of elasticity E as high as 160 MPa with a strength σ of 1500 MPa and a level of plasticity δ of 2–5% at room temperature.
