Abstract:

NASA LEWIS RESEARCH CENTER HAS DEVELOPED AN ARC SPRAY PROCESS WHICH CAN FABRICATE LAMINATED TITANIUM ALUMINIDE COMPOSITES USING TITANIUM ALUMINIDE WIRE TO FORM THE MATRIX. THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT MATERIALS ADVANCE IN HIGH STRENGTH, HIGH TEMPERATURE PROPERTIES AT REDUCED WEIGHT. A MAJOR LIMITATION TO THE APPLICATION OF THIS PROCESS HAS BEENTHE BRITTLENESS OF CONVENTIONALLY FORMED TITANIUM ALUMINIDE WIRE AND ITS HIGH COST. RIBBON TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DIRECT CAST RAPIDLY SOLIDIFIED TITANIUM ALUMINIDE STRIP FOR USE IN PLACE OF WIRE TO GAIN THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES: 1. IMPROVED DUCTILITY 2. LONGER LENGTHS OF STRIP 3. IMPROVED PROCESS ECONOMICS
