Abstract : An examination of the pressure welding of commercially pure A-55 titanium to type 303 stainless steel is made using paired sheet coupons and bar stock specimens. In addition to the experimental studies, theoretical analysis is made of the difficulties involved. Theoretical aspects considered include size effect, free energies of alloys, diffusion, and precipitation hardening. An appendix is attached on spot welding titanium to stainless steel in vacuo.
