  • Published 2011


The densification kinetics of a blend of unalloyed Ti and Al-40V master alloy powders are measured during uniaxial hot pressing under 3–10 MPa pressure for thermal cycling (860–1020 °C) or isothermal (1020 °C) conditions. Subsequent heat treatment for 4–16 h at 1020 °C results in a homogeneous Ti-6Al-4V microstructure. This process provides a low-cost… (More)
