Texture Separation for α/β Titanium Alloys
Over the past few decades, titanium and titanium alloys have been utilized in numerous applications due to their low density, high strength, and excellent corrosion resistance. With the highest strength to density ratio and a high melting temperature (1670°C), titanium alloys are always selected over other competing metallic materials, such as high strength aluminum alloys, for many high temperature aerospace applications (e.g., turbine engines).
