A compilation of data generated during studies concerning the development and characterization of titanium textures is presented. Results include pole figures, elastic and plastic properties in tension, and microstructures. Materials were examined in the as-received condition and in some cases after various heat treatments. A wide range of textures were found for nine titanium alloys including commercially pure, Ti-6Al-4V, Ti-4Al-3Mo-1V, Ti-8Al-1Mo-1V, Ti-6A1-6V-2Sn, Ti-8Mn, Ti4Al-4Mn, Ti-16V-2.5Al, and Ti-7Al-3Mo. The textures found indicate that the technological barrier for application of texture strengthening is due to the lack of established mill procedures for developing the desired texture and not that the specific preferred orientations are unattainable in titanium alloys.
