The high specific strength and corrosion resistance of titanium alloys provide an attractive alternative to steels when selecting materials for aerospace applications. High strength beta titanium alloys, for example Ti-10V-2Fe-3A1, have replaced steels for large components such as those found in landing gear assemblies. Economic production of these components is achieved through hot near net shape forging. However, the mechanical properties of titanium alloys are highly dependent on the final microstructure, which is developed during the manufacturing processes. Ti-10V-2Fe-3A1 exhibits a high level of microstructural sensitivity to hot working variables, often leading to complications in achieving the desired microstructure.
