Influence du soudage laser Nd˸YAG sur les propriétés métallurgiques et mécaniques de l'alliage de titane TA6V

Abstract : Welding operation consists of assembling two or more pieces to ensure the continuity of a structure. The resulting assembly may withstand mechanical loads. However, the welding operation modifies the state of materials. In other words, the metallurgical and mechanical behaviour of the latter is deeply affected. This work aims to better understand the influence of welding on the metallurgical and mechanical behavior of the Ti-6Al-4V titanium alloy. Comprehensive metallurgical analyses of the welded joint are carried out and reveal a sharp and strong microstructure gradient between the fusion zone and the base metal. Several residual stress fields are quantified by X-ray diffraction analyzes. Those residual stress fields are then compared with finite element simulations of the welding of a Ti-6Al-4V titanium alloy. The simulation are based on a weakly coupled model that accounts for temperature, stresses and phase transformations. The failure behaviour of the welded joint is studied. An overmatch was highlighted with mechanical tests. The fracture finally occurs in the base metal despite the presence of defects in the fusion zone. A Gurson-Tvergaard-Needleman approach is carried on. The mechanical parameters are quantified from mechanical tests on homogeneous samples of base metal and of a representative microstructure of the welded joint, which has been obtained from heat treatments. The model are in good agreement with mechanical tests
