A brief review of some research works for the advanced titanium alloys carried out at the Center for Advanced Aerospace Materials (CAAM) and Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM) has\break been described. New titanium alloys having superior superplastic characteristics as compared to the conventional Ti-6Al-4V alloy has been developed and the fatigue crack propagation behavior of a gamma TiAl alloy has been investigated. Current status of titanium research and developments in Korea is also briefly described.
