Abstract

A systematic study was undertaken to determine the effect of the β/α strength ratio on the stress-strain behavior of near beta titanium alloy by the finite element method where the volume percent of the second phase was constant at 16 vol.%. The β/α strength ratio of the harder β phase to the softer α phase was varied from approximately 4 to 5 where the a phase strength (0.2% YS) was kept constant at 296 MPa. It was found that the flow stress did not vary linearly with the strength ratio. Stress gradients were found in both α and β phases and the nature of the stress gradient was found to depend on α particle shape. In some locations higher stresses were found in near the interface. In β, the stresses were generally higher near the interfaces.
