A number of studies (1,2,3,4) have been reported on the effect of heat treatment on the fracture toughness of titanium alloys. However, most of the experiments have been designed to establish the basic relationship between microstructure and fracture toughness, with little attempt being made to relate these changes to commercially acceptable heat treatments.
