Abstract

Titanium and its alloys are of considerable interest for applications at cryogenic temperatures. This is evidenced by the large number of investigations on the low-temperature properties of titanium alloys. For example, the Cryogenic Materials Data Handbook [1] lists some forty papers and reports which contain cryogenic property data on titanium alloys. Additional sources of information on the mechanical properties of titanium alloys at cryogenic temperatures may be found in many other literature sources [2–23].
