Elastic Behavior of the Ti-13Nb-13Zr Alloy Obtained by Anelastic Spectroscopy


Article Preview

Measurements of anelastic relaxation (internal friction and frequency) as a function of temperature were carried out in samples of Ti-13Nb-13Zr using two experimental apparatus: Flexural Vibration of the first tone of samples in Acoustic Elastometer System (Vibran Technology®) operating in a kilohertz bandwidth, and Torsional Vibration of the samples in Kê-type Torsion Pendulum operating in a hertz bandwidth. Experimental spectra of anelastic relaxation were determined in the temperature range from 300 K to 450 K for a heating rate of 1K/min under pressure of 10-5 Torr, in both apparatus. The results show a relaxation structure strongly dependent on the microstructure of the material. The dynamical elastic modulus (E) of Ti-13Nb-13Zr alloy can be determined by flexural vibrations by frequency (f) measurements (f  E1/2). The anelastic relaxation spectrum of Ti-13Nb-13Zr alloy was a function of temperature obtained by torsional vibrations, not revealing the presence of interstitial solutes in solid solution in the temperature range of measurements.
