Structure and properties of welds of high-alloy titanium alloy after heat treatment

Titanium Alloys

The methods of x-ray diffraction analysis, electron microscopy, thermal analysis, and hardness measurement are used to study special features of decomposition of metastable β-solid solution in welds of titanium alloy VT19 after hardening from 950°C and aging at 430 and 500°C.

Key words
