Ultrasonic inspection is a nondestructive method in which beams of highfrequency mechanical waves are introduced into materials for the detection of surface and subsurface flaws in the material.
This chapter introduces the terminology of conventional and nonconventional machining processes and details general guidelines for successful handling of titanium and its alloys using these machining processes.
This chapter discusses the type of fabrication referred to as secondary working as distinct from primary working processes described in Chapter 9, Primary Working, in this book.
After converting a titanium alloy ingot into bar or billet, it can be further worked into useful shapes using essentially the same processes and equipment used to work other metals and alloys.
