Microstructure and Tensile Properties of Hot Worked High Nb Containing TiAl Alloy on Industrial Scale
. A hot working and its effect on the microstructure and tensile properties of Ti-45Al-9 (Nb, W, B, Y) alloy ingot on industrial scale were investigated. The results showed that the alloy has good workability in anα+γphase region. An ingot on industrial scale was successfully extruded followed by multi-step canned forging. The initial microstructure of the alloy is fine full lamellar (FL) microstructure. After hot working a sound pancake exhibiting a fine grain duplex (DP) microstructure with grain size about 20μm was obtained. The as-forged alloy has more balanced tensile properties than the small heats with similar composition and microstructure at both room and high temperatures.
