Abstract

Titanium alloys are interesting to several industrial applications including transportation and biotechnology’s, aerospace designers having been particularly interested because of the combination of their fatigue and time-dependent mechanical properties, good formability, high specific properties due to a relatively low density, and high resistance to aggressive environmental and impact loads. Titanium based alloys represent 30% and 40% of the total mass in commercial and military engines, respectively, a considerable amount of this mass being devoted to high temperature rotating disc and blade components.
