Bin Liu, Yong Liu, in Titanium Powder Metallurgy, Abstract. Titanium aluminide (TiAl)-based alloys are developed for high-temperature applications in aerospace and automotive industries because of their attractive properties, such as low density, high specific strength, high specific stiffness, and good high-temperature properties.

Gamma titanium aluminides have a specific modulus which is 50–70% greater than that for titanium alloys and retain their stiffness to higher temperatures.

The specific strengths of gamma alloys exceed those of polycrystalline nickel alloys at all temperatures and even those for titanium alloys at temperatures greater than ≈ by: Abstract.

A study has been made of the effect of temperature (between 25 °C and °C) on fracture toughness and fatigue-crack propagation behavior in an XD-processed, γ-based titanium aluminide intermetallic alloy, reinforced with a fine dispersion of ∼1 vol pct TiB 2 particles. It was found that, whereas crack-initiation toughness increased with increasing temperature, the crack-growth.

Resistance to fatigue crack growth in these alloys is related to the density and distribution of slip in the plastic zone directly ahead of the crack-tip during fatigue crack growth.

Limited experiments on gamma and gamma-based titanium aluminides have shown that the tensile stress- strain and fracture behavior of both single-phase and two-phase gamma titanium aluminide alloys can be degraded by hydrogen and hydrogenous gases at both ambient and elevated temperatures, primarily through a loss in ductility [2,3,].

The excellent density-specific properties of the gamma class of titanium aluminides make them attractive for intermediate-tem-perature (°(7.) aerospace applica-tions.

A common feature of Gamma Titanium Aluminides is the heterogeneous character of their microstructure. This heterogeneity causes failure processes to be progressive, with a continuous transition between a diffused and a localized mode of damage, the relative contribution of both modes to failure being determined by the degree of randomness of.

The first book entirely dedicated to the topic emphasizes the relation between basic research and actual processing technologies. As such, it covers complex microstructures down to the nanometer scale, structure/property relationships and potential applications in key industries.

Ambient-temperature fracture toughness and fatigue crack propagation behavior are investigated in a wide range of (γ+α 2) TiAl microstructures, including single-phase γ, duplex, coarse lamellar (1 to 2 mm colony size (D) and µm lamellar spacing (λ)), fine lamellar (D ∼ µm, λ= to µm), and a powder metallurgy (P/M) lamellar microstructure (D=65 µm, λ= µm).

The fatigue and fracture mechanisms in TiAl-xMn (x = to at. pct) gamma-based titanium aluminide alloys are elucidated. Unlike most gamma alloys, which fail predominantly by transgranular fracture at room temperature, fracture in ternary TiAl-xMn alloys is shown to occur mainly by intergranular failure.

The incidence of intergranular failure increased with increasing annealing. @article{osti_, title = {High temperature oxidation and fracture behavior in a gamma titanium aluminide alloy}, author = {Kameda, J and Gold, C R and Lee, E S and Bloomer, T E and Yamaguchi, M}, abstractNote = {High temperature fracture behavior in air has been studied in single grained titanium aluminides (Ti at.%Al) with two different lamellar orientations with respect to the.

Abstract. Essential features of the microstructures which can be produced via phase transformations in two-phase alloys based on γ-TiAl and α 2-Ti 3 Al are described. Effects of microstructure on the deformation and fracture behaviour are discussed with a view to finding possible pathways towards improved ductility and toughness in such alloys.

It was found that fatigue crack growth rates were higher at C than C, but that ∆Kth was also higher. Temperature excursions between and C during fatigue crack growth resulted in retardation of the crack growth rate, both on heating and cooling; however heating from to C at a ∆K.

History. Titanium aluminides are titanium alloys that are based on the formation of two intermetallic phases or compounds.

These alloys include, for example, the α-2 alloys that are based on the Ti 3 Al intermetallic phase and a variant of the Ti 2 AlNb phase, and the gamma titanium aluminide alloys (TiAl). The family of TiAl alloys was developed a few decades ago and it was the subject of.
