The primary objectives of this presentation are to review the basic approaches and developmental results of recent activities in the fields of determination of mechanical properties and fabrication characteristics of wrought titanium products. These studies have included a broad study or “overview” of the background in sheet metal testing and fabrication development, the test results obtained in certain sheet fabrication studies, extrusion fabrication development studies, comments on problems it fabrication of forgings, and a general summary of the importance of the interrelationship between materials specifications and the foregoing studies.
The results of these testing programs can be summarized into the following three categories: (1) mechanical properties data and fabrication limits for titanium alloy sheet materials; (2) mechanical properties data and fabrication limits for titanium alloy extrusions; and (3) comments on titanium alloy forgings and their fabrication limits.
