Metallic Materials Properties Development and Standardization (MMPDS):
CHAPTER 5 - TITANIUM ALLOYS
This document has not been validated by ESDU. It is provided to our users as a useful reference source.
This chapter contains the engineering properties and related characteristics of titanium and titanium alloys used in aircraft and missile structural applications.
General comments on engineering properties and the considerations relating to alloy selection are presented in Section 5.1. Mechanical- and physical-property data and characteristics pertinent to specific alloy groups or individual alloys are reported in Sections 5.2 through 5.5.
Titanium is a relatively lightweight, corrosion-resistant structural material that can be strengthened greatly through alloying and, in some of its alloys, by heat treatment. Among its advantages for specific applications are: good strength-to-weight ratio, low density, low coefficient of thermal expansion, good corrosion resistance, good oxidation resistance at intermediate temperatures, good toughness, and low heat-treating temperature during hardening, and others.
