Abstract:

The strengthening of titanium and titanium-molybdenum alloys by shock deformation at pressures of 70 and 200 kilobars was investigated and the mechanical properties correlated with the terminal microstructures. Four initial structures, hexagonal close-packed alpha-phase, alpha-martensite, metastable body-centered cubic beta-phase and stable beta-phase, were included in the study. Author
