A study was undertaken on a Ti-25Nb-3Mo- 3Zr-2Sn alloy using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) in order to improve understanding of the precipitation reactions occurring during aging heat treatments. The investigation showed that isothermal μ phase can be formed in the cast and solution treated alloy at low aging temperatures. An exothermic peak in the temperature range of 300 to 400°C was detected for precipitation of the μ phase, with approximate activation energy of 176 kJ/mol. The μ phase begins to dissolve at temperatures around 400°C and precipitation of the α phase is favoured at higher temperatures between 400°C and 600°C. An exothermic peak with activation energy of 197 kJ/mol was measured for precipitation of the α phase. Deformation resulting in the formation of the stress induced αα′′ phase altered the DSC heating profile for the solution treated alloy. The exothermic peak associated with precipitation of the μ phase was not detected during heating of the deformed material and increased endothermic heating associated with recovery and recrystallisation was observed.
