Yu.B. Egorova, S.V. Skvortsova, L.V. Davidenko, E.V. Chibisova, O.N. Gvozdeva
The statistic research of chemical composition and mechanical properties of VT6-alloy rolled bars (diameter of 15–150 mm) after annealing under different conditions has been carried out. Regression dependencies to provide regulated values of mechanical properties in accordance with industry standards have been proposed. It has been shown that bars should have a chemical composition equivalent to=8,0±0,5%,=3,2±0,5% to exclude the possibility of α2-phase formation and to achieve regulated values of mechanical properties. Recommendations for properties stability increase of bars by the adjustment of annealing conditions and the alloy content have been proposed.

The possibility of nitriding of V(50–74)-Al industrial alloy powders at a nitrogen pressure of 0.1 MPa confirmed by the methods of thermogravimetric, differential thermal, XRD and chemical analyzes. It has been established that the degree of nitration of alloys is affected by temperature, heating rate, powder fineness, as well as its initial composition. A V-Al-N precursor, chemical (N = 15.7) and phase (V(Al)s.s., VN, AlN) compositions of which are similar to those for the nitrogen-containing material obtained by the SHS method and currently used for the smelting of nitrogen-containing V-Al alloys designed for microalloying with nitrogen of structural titanium (α+β)-alloys, can be obtained by processing of powder mixture of V(65)-Al industrial alloy with aluminum in a retort in a nitrogen stream at T = 1200°C.

B.G. Ushakov, A.V. Kochergin
In this article, the materials and coatings that ensure the performance of titanium parts operated in friction and sealing units are considered.
Tungsten-Nickel composite materials, WC-Ni-C systems were chosen for highly loaded units operating under semi-dry (boundary) friction.
For the use of titanium alloys in sealing, studies were carried out on a titanium sample of PT-3V alloy coated with tungsten carbide paired with a carbon-silicon carbide material.
All tested materials and coatings have passed a full cycle of tests and have shown good results in wear and friction coefficient.

N.O. Borshchev, D.K. Vinokurov, O.A. Yuranev, A.E. Belyavskii, A.E. Sorokin
In this paper, we consider the method of theoretical calculation of a nonstationary temperature field in the isotropic approximation under the influence of an external heat load in the applied software “Therm”. The object of the study is an autonomous docking station (ASA) of the perspective Federation transport vehicle. Three possible options were considered for calculating the temperature field of a docking station exposed to radiant-convective heating, both for the conditions of two-hole descent in dense layers of the Earth’s atmosphere and for conditions of thermostatic testing. A theoretical and experimental calculation of the temperature field was validated and recommendations on the proposed methodologies were put forward.
