Strengthening of CP-Ti by Rolling at Room Temperature
The effects of asymmetric and symmetric rolling at room temperature on mechanical properties and microstructure of the commercial purity Ti were investigated by means of mechanical test, optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction and transition electron microscopy. The results show that through asymmetric and symmetric rolling processes the ultimate tensile strength is substantially increased from 450 MPa to 960 MPa. Microstructure observation illustrates this variation in mechanical property is caused by the grain refinement and work hardening.
