Abstract
Metastable β titanium alloys such as Ti-5Al-5Mo-5V-3Cr are of increasing interest due to their excellent corrosion resistance, high strength, and in particular, the ability to manipulate microstructure to a high degree to control the mechanical properties of the material. It is therefore important to consider how this manipulation of mechanical properties will affect the inspection of this material with ultrasonic testing both for the purposes of flaw detection and material characterization. The connection between material properties and ultrasonic characterization techniques will be discussed and then dissected in the context of Ti-5553. This metastable alloy was shown to exhibit remarkable variation in microstructure as well as ultrasonic velocity and attenuation demonstrating these techniques as potential candidates for characterizing Ti-5553 and Ti-5553 as a good candidate for aiding in future studies aimed at learning more about the role of secondary phases in ultrasonic wave propagation.
