Creep and Stress Rupture Behavior of Ti-24Al-11Nb


This work concerns the temperature and stress dependencies of the steady-state creep rate of a Ti-24Al-11Nb alloy in the temperature range between 593 and 760°C (1,100 and 1,400°F) and stress levels 137.9 to 275.8 MPa (20 to 40 ksi). Tests were conducted on both as-extruded and heat-treated specimens. A transition occurs in the creep curves at 704°C (1,300°F) and 206.9 MPa (30 ksi), indicating a creep mechanism change. Generally speaking, the fracture surface of as-extruded specimens shows a ductile transgranular fracture mechanism; a more ductile fracture mode is observed for heat-treated specimens.
