AbstractEffects of annealing temperature, cooling mode and isothermal annealing process on microstructure and mechanical properties of TC6 titanium alloy bars were studied. The results show that when specimens are annealed at 800 similar to 840 degrees C with air cooling, equiaxed microstructure forms and strength decreases slightly with increasing the annealing temperature. Bimodal microstructure forms due to secondary alpha phase precipitate in beta matrix after annealing at 880 degrees C with air cooling, which lead to the maximum strength and little decrease in plasticity. With further increasing of annealing temperature, microstructure is coarsend obviously, so strength and plasticity decrease. Fine acicular Widmanstatten structure is obtained above the beta transus, which lead to increase in strength but significantly decrease in plasticity. When specimens are annealed at 800 similar to 1000 degrees C with furnace cooling, there are two obvious differences of microstructure evolution between air-cooled and furnace-cooled specimens. Firstly, compared with air-cooled specimens, the annealing temperature of forming bimodal microstructure is higher and secondary alpha phase does not obviously precipitate in beta matrix below the beta transus. Secondly, lamellar Widmanstatten is obtained above the beta transus. The strength of furnace-cooled specimens decreases with increasing the temperature, and the change of plasticity is not significant. In addition, the maximum value of impact toughness occurs after annealing at 880 degrees C with furnace cooling. The excellent matching of strength, plasticity and impact toughness is obtained after isothermal annealing (880 degrees C, 2 h, FC to 650 degrees C, 2 h, AC), which is similiar to that of furnace-cooled specimen annealed at 880 degrees C.
