Abstract

The transformation superplasticity of unalloyed commercial purity titanium and Ti/10%TiC composite was studied and compared to materials with the same nominal composition and microstructure. The materials contained a much smaller amount of entrapped gas, thereby reducing the effect of entrapped gas on the superplasticity experiment. The addition of discontinuous, rigid, non-transforming particles to titanium enhanced the superplastic strain accumulated during a complete thermal cycle.
