Abstract
THERE IS A NEED FOR LIGHTWEIGHT ALLOYS WHICH ARE STRONG AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURE AND WHICH CAN BE FABRICATED TO SHEET, FOIL OR PLATE FOR USE IN AEROSPACE VEHICLES. THE NEW ALLOYS SHOULD PROVIDE AT LEAST A 200 DEGREE FAHRENHEIT ADVANTAGE OVER PRESENT ALLOYS. IN THIS PROPOSAL THE FEASIBILITY OF A NEW RS ODS TITANIUM-MOLYBDENUM ALLOY TO MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL BE DEMONSTRATED. THE ALLOY WILL HAVE COLLOIDAL OXIDE PARTICLES WHICH ARE METALLOPHILIC, DISPERSED UNIFORMLY THROUGHOUT ITS STRUCTURE, AND AS A CONSEQUENCE THESE DISPERSED PARTICLES WILL RETARD GRAIN GROWTH AND PRESERVE HIGH TEMPERATURE STRENGTH.
