Effect of Hydrogenation Pressure on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Ti-13Nb-13Zr Alloy Produced by Powder Metallurgy


Article Preview

The effects of the hydrogenation stage on microstructure and mechanical properties of Ti-13Nb-13Zr alloy produced by powder metallurgy have been studied. Powder alloys have been produced by hydrogenation with 250 MPa or 1 GPa and via high energy planetary ball milling. Samples were isostatically pressed at 200 MPa and sintered at 1150 °C for 7, 10 and 13 hours. Elastic modulus and microhardness were determined using a dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA) and a Vickers microhardness tester. Density of the samples was measured using a liquid displacement system. Microstructure and phases presents were analyzed employing scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Elastic modulus was 81.3  0.8 and 62.6  0.6 GPa for samples produced by 250 MPa and 1 GPa hydrogenation, respectively when sintered for 7h.
