Abstract

The effect of silicon (up to 4% (wt.)) on the structure, elastic modulus, hardness and mechanical properties of cast Ti—Nb—Si alloys produced by vacuum-arc melting on a copper, water-cooled hearth with non-consumable electrode is studied. It is shown that alloying of Ti—Nb alloys with silicon leads to an improvement of mechanical properties with minor increase in the elastic modulus. Full text download
