Abstract:

TITANIUM BASE ALLOYS HAVE THE ADVANTAGE THAT THEY ARE LIGHTWEIGHT AND THE DISADVANTAGE THAT THEY ARE NOT STRONG AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES. THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES THAT PROBLEM AND SUGGESTS THAT TITANIUM BASE ALLOYS MIGHT BE STRENGTHENED BY DISPERSION HARDENING WITH COLLOIDAL OXIDES BY A CASTING TECHNIQUE. THE SUGGESTED PROCESS INCLUDES ADDING A MOLY-THORIA POWDER TO MOLTEN TITANIUM. THERE IS SOME EVIDENCE THAT THORIA COLLOIDS REMAIN AS SUCH IN MOLTEN TITANIUM.
