Dislocation Structure for Ambient Temperature Creep in Titanium Metal
The primary creep behavior at ambient temperature of typical h.c.p., b.c.c. and f.c.c. metals and alloys of annealed state was surveyed and the deformation mechanism of CP-Ti was discussed through transmission electron microscopy. Only h.c.p. metals and alloys demonstrated significant creep at ambient temperature. Arrays of straight screw dislocations of b=1/2<2110> and <2110> direction were observed in the crept CP-Ti.
