The welded joints of high-strength titanium alloys, produced using arc welding, have, as a rule, unsatisfactory values of mechanical properties, especially those of ductility in the as-welded state as compared to the base metal. In the work the effect of thermal welding cycle, type of filler metal and the post-weld heat treatment on the structure and properties of welded joints of two-phase high-alloyed titanium alloys having σ t > 1000 MPa, were evaluated. The properties and structure of

It is rational to produce the joints of complex-alloyed titanium alloy Ti-6.5A1-3Mo-2.5V-4Nb-1Cr-1Fe-2.5Zr using argon arc welding applying filler wire VT1-00sv at modes, providing the through penetration and the content of wire components in the weld metal at level of 10 % in combination with the subsequent high-temperature annealing. 6 Ref., 1 Table, 6 Figures.
