TITANIUM IN AEROSPACE INDUSTRY
Titanium alloys are used in the manufacture of aircraft parts: fuselage, hydraulic tubing, landing gears, cabin window frames, casings, fasteners, hatches, wing structures, fan blades, compressor blades etc. The entire range of titanium alloys is used today Ffor tubular structures in rocket technology, for example, a titanium tube is used for solid fuel and liquid engines. Along with this, in the space industry, titanium alloy with nickel has found particular application, the peculiarity of which is that structures made of it have “memory form”. Radio antennas and frames of solar batteries are made of such an alloy, which can be rolled up at ordinary temperature, and when heated, they independently.
