Advances in Ambient Temperature Creep Deformation Behavior of Two-Phase Titanium Alloys
In recent years, significant advances have been made in regard to the creep deformation behavior of two phase titanium alloys. It has been shown that the creep resistance depends on a number of factors, including the shape of the component phases, the strength difference between the phases, and the stability of the beta phase. For example, in two-phase materials with a similar volume fraction and morphology of phases, if the beta phase is less stable, then the creep resistance is lower. These developments will be reviewed and the reasons for such effects will be suggested.
