Ti-Fe binary alloys were rapidly solidified by the melt-spinning technique, and four compositions were examined: Ti-5 wt pct Fe, which is the critical composition for theβ to ω athermal transformation; Ti-10 wt pct Fe, which represents a hypoeutectoid composition; the eutectoid composition Ti-15 wt pct Fe; and Ti-20 wt pct Fe, as an example of a hypereutectoid alloy. The Ti-5 wt pct Fe rapidly solidified ribbons are composed of two different structures. The first consists of α′-martensite plates inβ matrix and the second, athermal ω particles inβ matrix. The Ti-10, 15, and 20 wt pct Fe alloys are also composed of two structures. These areβ grains and isothermal-like ω particles inβ matrix. A solidification model is suggested which explains the existence of two different microstructures at the same composition and the for-mation of two kinds of ω particles.
