AbstractIMI834 (Ti-5.8Al-4Sn-3.5Zr-0.7Nb-0.5Mo-0.35Si) is a high-tech near-α titanium alloy with improved creep resistance and mechanical property retention at temperatures up to 600°C [1]. It is used in the aerospace industry for compressor disks and blades due to its excellent balance between creep resistance and fatigue strength [2]. The linear friction welding (LFW) behaviour of IMI834 displaying an initial bimodal α+β microstructure was investigated using varying axial pressures during welding. Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) was used to characterize the texture and phase fraction of the welded IMI834 samples in the weld zone (WZ) and thermomechanically affected zones (TMAZ) in relation to the base material. Based on microhardness evaluation of the weldments, the WZ was determined to be slightly harder than the base material. © 2012 Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
