Titanium Alloy Will Usher In Broad Prospects In Aviation Industry

     Titanium alloy will usher in broad prospects in aviation industry

Sponsored by the China Federation of enterprises and the China Entrepreneur Association, the "2017 

China top 500 enterprises Summit Forum" was held on September 9th -10 in Jiangxi, Nanchang province.

 Chinese Academy of Sciences Cao Chunxiao attended and delivered a speech. Cao Chunxiao was 

working at the China Hangfa Beijing sky Materials Research Institute, today's topic is "and" the aero engine indissoluble bound titanium.

In January last year, the State Council formally approved the establishment of China aviation engine 

group, which was formally established in August. The National Aviation Science and technology major of 

aero-engine and gas turbine has also been officially launched this year. The aviation engine is the 

crystallization of high technology. It is very difficult. It is also the concentrated expression of the 

comprehensive national strength of our country and an important symbol of an innovative country.

"Generation of material technology, generation aviation equipment", it is the true portraiture of 

development history of world aviation." Cao Chunxiao said, and the titanium alloy is an important 

member of the large family of aviation materials, and the engine plays an important role in aviation 

equipment. Titanium in the last century, the advent of 50s, greatly promoted the development of aero-

engine aero engine needs strong promoted the development of titanium, between the two is the 

dialectical relations, interdependence, mutual promotion and the achievements of the marriage 

between titanium and aero engine.

Process innovation is a very effective way to promote the development and application of titanium alloys. 

With the emergence of composite materials, not only are they used in large quantities on airplanes, but

 also the engines are involved. For example, the engines above 787 and 747 use composite materials 

instead of titanium alloys. It turned out that the inherent status of titanium alloys may be gradually 

replaced by composite materials. But the composite is not to say that all composite materials, Cao 

Chunxiao said, because the bird after loaded on the plane to fall apart, so the front or side with titanium, 

titanium alloy wrapped, but overall composite materials accounted for a large part of the weight.

"Looking to the future, the titanium alloy will not be accepted by the dark horse and will continue to

expand its sphere of influence." Cao Chunxiao said, titanium aluminum alloy will usher in a very broad 

prospects. U. S. NASA predicts that the use of titanium aluminum compounds in aviation could reach 

20% by 2020. However, great progress has been made in the study of titanium aluminum metal bond


compounds in China. The titanium alloy low pressure turbine blade precision castings have been 

developed by the Institute of metal science of the Chinese
