Tensile Properties and Fracture Behaviour of Induction Sintered Ti and Ti-6Al-4V (wt %) Powder Compacts

Article Preview

Induction heating of powder compacts could be a very effective method for metal powder consolidation to get the final product or as an intermediate consolidation step to produce feedstock for metal powder forging or extrusion. Our study has proven that only a few minutes of induction heating, of Ti and Ti-6Al-4V (wt %) powder compacts, increases their density dramatically and causes a significant sintering effect, as evidenced by the formation of interparticle diffusion bonding and reflected by the tensile properties of the induction sintered powder compacts. This paper presents and discusses the results of a study on the tensile properties and fracture behaviour of the Ti and Ti-6Al-4V powder compacts sintered under a variety of induction heating conditions. Keywords: Titanium alloys, powder consolidation, powder compact sintering, induction heating.
