The manufacturing method for producing high-strength Ti-10V-2Fe-3Al alloy forgings with suitable ductility/toughness combinations has been established. The achievable property combinations at high strengths depend critically on the billet chemistry-homogeneity, the forge heat-treat variables, and the section thickness of the forgings. The manufacturing capability developed in this program has made this alloy an attractive potential for high-strength forging applications on Boeing's future aircraft.
