This article summarizes the metallurgical and environmental variables that affect fracture toughness, fatigue life, and subcritical crack growth of titanium alloys, such as chemistry, microstructure, texture, environment, and loading. The classes of titanium alloys considered in the article include alpha-beta alloys, Ti-6AI-4V; alpha alloys, Ti-8Al -1Mo-IV, Ti-5AI-2.5Sn, Ti-6242S; and beta alloys, solute-lean beta alloys and solute-rich beta alloys.
