The Investigation of the Titanium Structure after Shock Wave Loading

  • A. R. Kutsar
  • V. N. German


The analysis of the previous data on phase transformations under shock wave loading(1) shows that the same polymorphic transitions occur in short duration conditions of dynamic compression as in static high-pressure experiments. Until quite recently the α-ω transformation in titanium was not detected during shock loading.
