Composition of Surface Layers of Titanium Alloy after Electrospark Alloying

The effect of the regime of electrospark alloying (ESA) on the thickness, hardness, and phase composition of the alloyed hardened layer on the surface of specimens of titanium alloy VT1-0 is studied. The thickness of the layer depends considerably …


A Study of Correlation between Tensile Strength and Hardness of Aluminum Alloy 2219 and its Welded Joints

Correlation between the ultimate tensile strength and the hardness of aluminum alloy 2219 and its joints welded with a variable-polarity tungsten electrode in inert gases (VPTIG) and by friction stir welding (FSW) is studied. The yield strength …
