Effect of heat treatment processing on microstructure and tensile properties of Ti-6Al-4V-10Nb alloy

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Effects of heat treatment processing on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Ti-6Al-4V-10Nb alloy were investigated. The microstructures were investigated by SEM, TEM and XRD, and the mechanical properties were evaluated by tensile tests at room and elevated temperatures. The results indicate that the lath-like and globular primary �� phase, secondary �� phase and �� phase are obtained after forging and heat treatment processing. The size of secondary �� phase is much smaller than that of primary �� phase. After heat treatment, the volume fraction of primary �� phase is decreased, and that of secondary �� phase is increased. With the increase of solution temperature, the volume fraction of primary �� phase is gradually decreased, and that of secondary �� phase is obviously increased. The yield strength and tensile strength of Ti-6Al-4V-10Nb alloy are significantly enhanced with the solution temperature increasing.
