Article Preview

In the Ti-6Al-4V-ELI alloy, the alpha phase is gradually transformed into the beta phase until beta-transus temperature ( 980°C) is reached, and the transformation is completed. It is important to identify the transformation kinetics to accomplish the solution heat treatments in which a phase alpha percentage remains unchanged. Kinetics and other transformation characteristics are evaluated, as well as their influence on subsequent cooling transformations, by differential and dilatometric thermal analysis, electric conductivity measurements, hardness measurements and metallographic observation, after performing controlled thermal treatments. Starting from the mill annealed condition, samples were heated at temperatures between 650-1000 °C for 1 hour, then water quenched and subsequently heated for aging, air cooled. Finally, the mechanical properties of samples heat treated were obtained.
