The new titanium alloy Ti-10V-2Fe-3Al is shown to have adequate fracture toughness and stress corrosion resistance at the 180 ksi tensile strength level. This alloy has higher strength and fatigue resistance than other commercially available titanium alloys, and a considerable strength-to-weight advantage over comparable-strength steels. Detailed fracture toughness and fatigue data are presented and compared to commercially available titanium alloys. The special combination of properties and fabricability characteristics is likely to lead to use of this alloy in aerospace, commercial, and marine applications.
