In-Situ Studies of Strain Rate Effects on Phase Transformation and Microstructural Evolution in Metastable β Titanium Alloys.
Titanium (Ti) alloys are heavily utilized in the aerospace and defense industries for their high specific strength. Ti alloys are promising candidates for lightweight crash and blast resistant structural applications. Deformation mechanisms like TRansformation Induced Plasticity (TRIP) and TWinning Induced Plasticity (TWIP) simultaneously provide increased strength and ductility by engineering the work hardening response. Although TRIP and TWIP Ti alloys promise improvements in ductility and damage tolerance, fundamental understanding is still lacking, specifically with respect to dynamic ...
