Heat Treatment of Ti2AlNb Intermetallic and its Superplastic Properties


Article Preview

Ti2AlNb orthorhombic alloys exhibit great potential as advanced aerospace and structural materials serviced at elevated temperature. In this paper, pre-heat treatment of as-received hot rolling Ti-22Al-25Nb alloy was conducted. Fine, stable and equiaxed grain structure was obtained by the pre-heat treatment. The volume fraction of B2 increased when annealing at 980°C. The Ti-22Al-25Nb alloy showed characteristics of superplastic deformation when tested at 960°C. Maximum elongation of 280% has been obtained at strain rate of 1.0×10-4s-1.
