The effect of Zr, Hf, Nb, Ta, Mo, W. Re, Al, and Sn (up to 10 at.%) on the microstructure, hardness, ductility, strength, superconducting-transformation temperature; and critical current of cold-worked V alloys containing 25 to 85 at.% Ti obtained in an arc furnace with a helium atmosphere is considered. On increasing the amount of the alloying elements the critical current, transformation temperature, and ductility of the equiatomic V-Ti alloy are reduced and the strength and hardness increased. There is a particularly sharp fall in superconducting characteristics on introducing nontransition metals. A rise in superconducting properties occurs on alloying certain nonequiatomic binary alloys.
