Double Annealing Processes of Ti-5Al-5Mo-5V-1Cr-1Fe Titanium Alloy


Article Preview

In this work, double annealing processes of Ti-5Al-5Mo-5V-1Cr-1Fe titanium alloy were systemically investigated, and the microstructure and property of different processes were compared. The results show that, when the first stage annealing is air cooling, the microstructure with continuous and straight grain boundary is obtained, and corresponding mechanical property is not very good; When the first stage annealing is furnace cooling, the influence of first stage annealing temperature on microstructure and property is obvious. Excellent comprehensive property can be obtained when β grain boundary and a phase are discontinuous and tortuous. Further, based on this research, a new double annealing process is developed, which can obtain excellent ductility when large size forging is fabricated above the phase transformation point and has small deformation.
