A portion of the titanium-vanadium-silicon system was chosen to be studied after a literature survey of this system had been conducted. Various procedures and methods of alloy preparation were studied and, in a few cases, were perfected. Alloys containing equal parts of titanium and vanadium and up to 7% silicon were considered. The study, however, concentrated on alloys containing under 1% silicon when it was found that only these alloys were readily formed into useful shapes. Physical properties and microstructures of these alloys are discussed and some recommendations for future investigation are made.
