This text offers previously elusive information on state-of-the-art Russian metallurgic technology of titanium alloys. It details their physical, mechanical, and technological properties, as well as treatments and applications in various branches of modern industry, particularly aircraft and aerospace construction. Titanium Alloys: Russian Aircraft and Aerospace Applications addresses all facets of titanium alloys in aerospace and aviation technology, including specific applications, fundamentals, composition, and properties of commercial alloys. It is useful for all students and researchers interested in the investigation and applications of titanium.
This book owes its being to ten years of generously sponsored research, support which the authors gratefully acknowledge. … The authors have penetrated deep into previously uncharted waters and claim a first for applying thermodynamic/mathematical modelling
to the complex issue of inducing phase developments which lead to enhanced mechanical properties. It is to be hoped that these new findings will become more widely known and soon put to profitable practical use.
