V.M. Chumarev, Yu.M. Chvalinsky, A.V. Larionov, S.M. Pikalov, D.V. Taranov
In experimental-industrial conditions the principal possibility of processing of the V-Al alloys in a nitrogen plasma has been shown. The reactor with a capacity up to 7,0 kg/h to nitride the material by the plasma-chemical method has been developed and tested. It was found that a product with a nitrogen content up to 12.0 wt. % suitable for introduction into the mixture for the aluminothermic smelting of ligatures for structural titanium alloys can be yield by plasma-chemical treatment of powders of V(65-74)-Al alloys.

The structure and mechanical properties of titanium pseudo-β-alloy VST 5553 rolled metal (plates in the thickness of 100 mm) after hardening heat treatment in different modes are studied. The possibility of obtaining of a high complex of physical and mechanical properties in combination with a reduced sensitivity to corrosive environment is shown for deformed semi-finished products of the big thickness used in marine engineering, by means of selection of the optimal heat treatment regime.

The relationship between the percentage reduction in area, the primary α-plane width and the armor ballistic tests score of heat-treated sheets of VST2 alloy was established. The limitations on the aluminum equivalent were determined for the sheets of VST2 alloy under investigation which allowed us to obtain a relevant ballistic score for the armor use.
Keywords: economically alloyed titanium alloy VST2, sheet, hardening heat treatment, quenching, aging, structure, strength properties, plastic properties, armor ballistic score.

Influence of structure on creep mechanisms in alloys based on titanium nickelide
D.E. Gusev, M.Yu. Kollerov, A.A. Sharonov
In this paper, was investigated the processes of short-term creep under torsional strain in two titanium nickelide-based alloys containing 54.7 and 55.7 wt. % Ni, respectively. The tests were carried out in an air atmosphere on wire samples without preliminary heat treatment and after annealing (700°C, 1 hour) at deformation temperatures of 450 and 500°C. Estimation of the contribution of various mechanisms of creep on the plastic strain accumulation processes was made. It is shown that one of the main mechanisms of creep is sliding along the grain boundaries.
Keywords: titanium nickelide, creep, deformation, structure, sliding, grain boundaries.

Microstructure and thermomechanical properties of powdered titanium under elevated temperatures
L.I. Kuksenova, A.A. Shiryaev, V.I. Savenko, A.I. Malkin
X-ray diffraction is used to study temperature evolution of phase composition, microstructure and thermo-mechanical properties of industrial titanium powder during thermal cycling in the temperature region 25–700°C. It is found that the thermal cycling leads to change of volume ratio of the α-titanium and its nitrides, carbides and oxides present in the initial powder. It is shown that the temperature changes are accompanied by processes of ordering/disordering of nitrogen, carbon and oxygen interstitial atoms in the respective sublattices of the phases.
Keywords: titanium, nonstoichiometric interstitial phase, x-ray diffraction, thermal cycling.
