Influence of Isothermal Forging Temperature on Microstructure and Tensile Properties of Ti-5.8Al-4.0Sn-4.0Zr-0.7Nb-0.4Si-1.5Ta Near-α Titanium Alloy
The microstructures and room temperature and 600°C tensile properties of Ti-5.8Al-4.0Sn-4.0Zr-0.7Nb -0.4Si-1.5Ta alloy after isothermal forging have been studied. The forging temperature range was from 850°C to 1075°C, and the constant strain rate of 8×10-3/S-1 was adopted. With the increase of forging temperature, the volume fraction of primary α phase decreased and the lamellar α phase became thicker when the temperatures were in range of 850°C -1040°C; The grain size became uneven and the α phase had different forms when the forging temperature was 1040°C and 1075°C respectively; The tensile strength was not sensitive to the temperature and the most difference was within 20MPa. Tensile strength and yield strength attained to the maximum when temperature was 1020°C; the ductility decreased with the increase of forging temperature, and this trend became more obvious if forging temperature was above the β-transus temperature.
