Effects of TiA16V4 Metallurgical Structures on Fatigue Properties

There are many investigations on the influence of microstructure on the fatigue strength of TiA16V4 which have shown that large grain size material with Widmannstätten structure has a much lower fatigue strength than fine grain size material with an equiaxed structure. By aging processes the fatigue strength can be increased but the ratio between tensile strength and fatigue strength is in most cases decreased (1) – (7).
