Production of Nanostructure in Titanium by Cold Rolling
The paper considers changes in microstructure, texture and mechanical properties of commercial titanium with initial coarse-grained structure during cold sheet rolling. It has been shown that rolling above 75% leads to formation of a uniform nanocrystalline (NC) structure with a grain size of approximately 0.2 'm in the sheet material. The sheets have a high level of mechanical properties which is comparable with the properties of bulk specimens of titanium with NC structure produced by some other method of severe plastic deformation.
