Description: Welding is used to fabricate titanium and titanium-alloy components for air-frames, Jet engines, missiles, and chemical equipment. Annong the most important considerations in adapting titanium and its alloys to welded components is to use proper welding procedures and to select alloys that have the required weld-joint properties. The chemical and metallurgical characteristics that affect the selection of welding processes and alloys are discussed. Also, information is presented on surface preparation, welding procedures, and quality control. In addition, detailed data on the mechanical properties of welded joints in the commercial grades of titanium and titanium alloys and how these properties are affected by heat treatment and elevated temperatures are presented.
