This work describes the development of texture during hot rolling of two alloys namely, Ti-12Nb and Ti-16Nb. The alloys have been unidirectionally hot rolled to 80 % reductions at 800°C and air cooled. Both the alloys show the presence of a² (orthorhombic) and small volume fraction of b (bcc) phases in hot rolled condition. The alloy Ti-12Nb exhibit moderate intensity texture while the alloy Ti-16Nb displays quite strong texture. The high overall intensity of texture in alloy Ti-16Nb in 80 % HR specimen can be attributed to the presence of large volume fraction of b phase in comparison to that of the alloy Ti-12Nb. This has been extended to study the textural changes after b solution treatment. This heat treatment consists of two types of phase transformations that are a² ® b ® a² and a² ® b ® a after water quenching and furnace cooling from β phase field.
