A New Method for Low-Cost Production ff Titanium Alloys for Reducing Energy Consumption of Mechanical Systems

The University of Utah - Salt Lake City, UT

A novel metallurgical process for producing titanium (Ti) components could produce a ten-fold material usage improvement in aircraft and vehicle manufacturing. This technology combines a lower temperature melting process with minimal post-processing steps to achieve part structures with Ti's high strength-to-weight ratio.
