Abstract/Summary The effects of alloy chemistry and heat treatment on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Ti-Nb-Zr-Mo-Sn near β type titanium alloys have been investigated. Near β titanium alloys consisting of non-toxic alloying elements Mo, Nb, Zr, Sn possess a low Young's modulus, and moderate strength and plasticity. As the hot rolled TLM alloy (Ti-25Nb-3Zr-3Mo-2Sn) possesses high strength and low Young's modulus a detailed investigation is performed for this alloy. Solution treatment of the hot rolled TLM alloy reduces strength and increases ductility without affecting the Young's modulus. Ageing of the solution treated TLM alloy reduces elongation and increases the Young's modulus with little change in strength. Both solution treated and aged conditions show features of two stage yielding associated with a strain induced martensitic transformation.
