Chapter 9: Joining Technology and Practice
This chapter covers the welding characteristics of titanium along with the factors that determine which welding method is most appropriate for a given application. It discusses the joinability of titanium alloys, the effect of heat on microstructure, the cause of various defects, and the need for contaminant-free surfaces and atmospheres. It describes common forms of fusion, arc, and solid-state welding along with the use of filler metals, shielding gases, and stress-relief treatments. It also discusses the practice of titanium brazing and the role of filler metals.
