Abstract

Nanohardness and Effective Elastic Moduli were measured for pulsed-Gas Tungsten Arc Welded Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy using autogenous mode through nanoindentation and atomic force microscopy. Experiments were conducted using a Berkovich tip on nanoindentor with Berkovich tip and elliptical pile ups were measured using an Atomic Force Microscope. Nanohardness and effective elastic moduli were calculated in the base metal, heat affected zone and fusion zone of the weldments using different approaches namely Oliver-Pharr method, AFM analysis and work of indentation. A significant difference was observed in the nano-mechanical response using these approaches which was attributed to the pile-up morphology of the nano indents. The presence of residual stress in the weldments also significantly influenced the nanohardness profile across the weld joint. The present research suggested that the work of indentation is most suitable for assessment of nanomechanical properties of Ti-5Al-2.5Sn alloy weldments among the three techniques studied in this investigation.
