Extract

Studies aimed at improvements in the properties of titanium aluminides continue and efforts on optimizing the microstuctural parameters and a variety of processing techniques have attracted significant attention. In particular alloy compositions containing Ti-44to48at%Al and Nb as the major ternary addition (often with other minor alloying element additions) have been found quite promising. A fine fully lamellar structure in these TiAl-based intermetallic alloys has been reported to possess a combination of improved room temperature ductility, excellent fracture toughness, good oxidation resistance and creep properties. One of the serious problems associated with the TiAl-based alloys is the large grain size that develops in these alloys especially upon casting. A recent approach is to use directional solidification techniques in producing the TiAlbased alloys and it has been shown that desired orientations can indeed be produced by choice of suitable processing parameters.

In this study, we have examined the microstructural features associated with chill-cast as well as directionally solidified Ti-44at%Al-l lat%Nb alloy.
