A noticeable reduction in the cost of structural components made from titanium, both commercially pure and the alloy counterpart is possible with the concept of built-up welded fabrication. Rolled sheets of the titanium material can be welded together to fabricate a built-up structural component without having to machine the part from a large billet. In this paper, the results of a recent feasibility study on the manufacturing of welded built-up I-beams for large structural applications are presented and discussed. The fillet welds were produced using the pulsed Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW-P) process. Commercially pure titanium (Grade 2) and a ...
