As a result, the strength increase resulting from the tungsten addition is obtained with no density loss. An alloy as recited by claim 5, said alloy as-solutionized having a yield stress of at least 150 ksi with a minimum 240 ksi ultimate tensile strength. 6a and 6b are plots of the 0.
8 and y ranges from about 0. The martensite is supersaturated with titanium forming a substitutional solid solution. The specific techniques, conditions, materials, proportions and reported data set forth to illustrate the principles and practice of the invention are exemplary and should not be construed as limiting the scope of the invention. The ternary tungsten addition accomplishes this strengthening without detrimental reduction in density, due to tungsten's high density of 19.
This is accomplished by applying normal processing techniques for ingot uranium-titanium alloys with the modification of adding tungsten in the range of 0. The combination of high strength and high density makes the U--Ti x --Wy ternary alloys ideal candidates for ballistic applications such as kinetic energy penetrators, shaped charged liners, and explosively formed penetrators.
National Materials Advisory Board Report, NMAB-350 1980. This is another illustration of the precipitation hardening behavior presented in Example 7, i. 0 W alloy shows a hardening response indicating that precipitation strengthening found in the binary U--Ti alloys is retained in the ternary U--Ti--W alloys. 4a and 4b which are plots of the data of Table II. High strength uranium alloys and 4b are plots of the 0.
The strengthening mechanisms in uranium-titanium alloys have been summarized by Eckelmeyer in "Diffusional Transformations, Strengthening Mechanisms, and Mechanical Properties of Uranium Alloys", from Metallurical Technology of Uranium and Uranium Alloys 1981page 129.
A high density uranium-based alloy, consisting essentially of the formula U--Ti x --W y where x ranges from about 0. The variation of tensile properties of the aged material as a function of tungsten content is further illustrated in FIGS. " Y-DA-6665, Union Carbide Corp. 5 is a graph showing hardness vs.
The uranium-titanium-tungsten ternary alloys are heat treatable in the same manner as the binary uranium-titanium alloys. A high density High strength uranium alloys alloy, consisting essentially of the formula U--Ti x --W y where x ranges from about 0. An alloy as recited by claim 1, wherein y ranges from about 0.
The combination of strength and ductility is enhanced when x ranges from about 0. Alloys of the invention circumvent this problem with the ternary addition of tungsten.
