Strategies for Improving Ductility of Cryomilled Nanostructured Titanium

Abstract:

Article Preview

The room temperature tensile behavior of commercially pure titanium (CP-Ti), cryomilled under different conditions and forged quasi-isostatically into bulk form, was studied in detail. The results demonstrate that the ductility of cryomilled titanium can be improved, and that the mechanical properties can be tailored using three specific strategies: the use of liquid argon as cryomilling media, introduction of coarse grained regions, and low temperature heat treatment. Cryomilling in a liquid argon environment, which differs from the widely used nitrogen cryogenic environment, was found to have a particularly strong influence on ductility, as it prevents nitrogen embrittlement. The contribution of coarse grains and heat treatment to ductility are also introduced and discussed using a comparative approach.
