Abstract : A series of small-scale U-0.8 w/o Ti alloy castings (approx. 4 in. OD x 10 in. long) were made under conditions designed to produce ingots of varying carbon content. These ingots were destructively sampled to expose the longitudinal center line of each casting for a metallographic analysis and transversely sampled to give an edge-center, top-bottom, alloy-carbon distribution pattern. The results show that low carbon (less than 100 ppm) must be maintained to achieve predictable recovery and uniform distribution of titanium (target + or - 0.1 w/o). (Author)
