Abstract : Studies were conducted on a 1000-pound ingot of titanium alloy Ti-6Al-6V-2Sn-4Zr, in order to determine the metal working characteristics. Five actual titanium components were formed from this material by extrusion and press forming. The results from these tests indicated that the ease of formability compared favorably with that of the commercial alloy Ti-6Al-6V2Sn. The mechanical properties of test specimens taken from parts formed from both alloys disclosed that for the alloy Ti-6Al-6V-2Sn-4Zr the tensile strength was substantially higher and ductility and toughness were lower at the same yield strengths.
