In the work, stress state of welded joints of intermetallic of the TiAl system was investigated. The influence of stress state of weld on cold cracks formation was determined. A mathematical model was created and computational experiments were carried out to determine residual welding stresses in welded joint. Using the methods of optical and electron microscopy, the structure of welded joints of intermetallic of titanium-aluminum system was studied. At the same time, the relationship between the cooling rate of the material after the end of welding process and the structure of welded joint was established. Based on the results of numerical experiments and metallographic examinations, a technology for welding of intermetallic alloy with a subsequent local heat treatment was developed, which allows producing defect-free welded joints. 7 Ref., 4 Figures.
