Chapter 8: Heat Treating
This chapter discusses the effect of heat treating on titanium alloys and the influence of time and temperature on critical properties and behaviors. It explains how heat treatments are used to make titanium stronger, tougher, more ductile, and easier to machine as well as more resistant to the effects of corrosion and thermal and mechanical fatigue. It describes accepted practices for stress relieving, aging, annealing, and post-treatment processing along with associated challenges and concerns.
