Isothermal phase transformation in Ti-15Nb-10Zr (at%) alloys has been examined by mainly means of transmission electron microscopy. Specimens solution-treated at 1000°C in  phase field were directly held at temperatures between 350 and 450°C for 1.8-86.4ks, which are called "DH (direct holding)-specimen". On the other hand, some specimens solution-treated at 1000°C were quenched into iced brine and then aged at temperatures between 350 and 450°C, which are called "QA(quench and aging)-specimen". In the DH-specimen held at 400°C α phase formed in β matrix. Microstructure evolution of QA-specimen aged at 400°C, on the other hand, is as follows.  phase formed in β matrix after aging for 1.8ks and further aging led to growth of  phase. After prolonged aging, α phase started to form in β matrix. These experimental results indicate that process of the quenching and reheating promotes the formation of  phase. Specimen quenched into iced brine after solution treatment exhibited α'' phase formation. The α'' phase in the quenched specimen would transform into β phase during reheating to the aging temperature. Reversion process of α''  β phase could promote the formation of  phase in β. Microstructure formation in the DH- and QA-specimens at 350 and 450°C will also be explained.
