The effect of Aluminium on Deformation by twinning in Alpha Titanium

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The deformation behaviour of binary Ti-Al model alloys (0-6wt% Al) with a ring texture has been observed in respect to nucleation and growth of twins, specifically 10-12-tensile twins. The fraction of these 85 ̊ tensile twins after 9% compression decreases slightly from commercially pure Ti (CP-Ti) to Ti-4Al but it reduces significantly in Ti-6Al. An increase in the activity of 11-21-tensile twins can be observed as soon as 2wt% Al are added to CP-Ti. The tensile lattice strain along c-axis to nucleate 85 ̊ twins shows a non linear trend with the Al content and suggest superimposed effects of stacking fault energy (SFE) and short range ordering (SRO).
