Summary Similar and dissimilar butt joint welds comprising combinations of commercially pure grade 4 titanium (CP-Ti), Ti-6Al-4V (Ti-64) and Ti-5Al-5V-5Mo-3Cr (Ti-5553) were created using the electron beam process. The resultant welds were studied by means of metallography, optical microscopy, mechanical testing and scanning electron microscopy. Mechanical testing was performed on welded samples to study the joint integrity and fracture characteristics. A scanning electron microscope investigation was performed on the fracture surface to reveal their fracture modes. While all weldments were crack free and most weldments exhibited mechanical properties comparable to the base metal, negligible ductility was exhibited during tensile testing joints of Ti- 5553 welded to either Ti-64 or Ti-5553.
