S.V. Skvortsova, O.N. Gvozdeva, N.V. Ruchina, A.E. Ivanov
This work presents results in research of the effect of heating temperature and cooling rate on phase composition, structure, technological and mechanical properties of a rod stock made of the VT16 two-phase (a+b) titanium alloy. It is stated that cooling rate does not substantially affect structure formation after annealing at the temperatures of 680° and 700°C and provides ultimate compression degree under upsetting on the level of 75%. It is shown that the same level is obtained after heating up to 750°C and following furnace cooling. It is also stated that the maximum technological plasticity of more than 78% can be achieved after a two-step annealing. This work shows that obtaining required values of strength, elongation and contraction, and shear stress is possible by means of strengthening heat treatment at the temperature of 450°C.
