Effect of TIG-Welding on the Structure and Mechanical Properties of the Pseudo-β Titanium Alloy VT19 Welded Joints


Article Preview

Analysis of the TIG-welding impact on the structure and mechanical properties of pseudo-β titanium alloy VT19 welded joints, obtained with different welding speed, different filler wire amount in welded joint, with and without flux layer. Microstructure of obtained welded joints were investigated. Using welded joints microsections approximate amount of β-phase in different parts of welds have been obtained. Mechanical properties of the obtained welded joints were analyzed and dependency of tensile strength and amount of β-phase were build.
