Abstract : The standard forged and low temperature standard forged produced the highest strength and ductility parameters regardless of subsequent heat treatment, when compared to beta forged material. Duplex annealing results in the highest annealed strength and ductilities regardless of forging temperature. Solution treating standard forged material at 1720F, followed by aging at 1000F results in the best combination of strength and ductility for the hardening operations investigated. The tensile property most adversly affected by beta forging is reduction in area. (Author)
