Decomposition of the Martensite in Two-Phase Titanium Alloys

The present work is devoted to an electron microscope study of the decomposition of hexagonal martensite in α+ß titanium alloys. As previous investigations have shown, martensite decomposition in titanium alloys is heterogeneous in character.(1,2) In this connection it is of interest to study the martensite substructure and its effect on the decomposition kinetics, dispersity and distribution density of precipitating phases.
