Research Institution
In this Phase II SBIR program, QuesTek will apply its Materials by Design® technology to the final design and development of a new castable titanium alloy for Army applications. Using cast Ti-6Al-4V as a property goal baseline, the aim is to develop a new castable alloy composition, exploring design space that incorporates lower cost alloying components and processing steps. In addition, final alloy design will incorporate sensitivity to the elevated impurity levels (oxygen, iron, etc.) encountered in non-aerospace-grade stock materials. The final composition will be produced (cast) and characterized at intermediate scale into test geometries, and at final scale into specific Army components.
