In this study, the creep properties of three titanium alloys were experimentally obtained at different applied stresses and at 683 K. X-ray diffraction and optical and electron microscopy were used to help characterize the microstructure before and after creep deformation and to show how changes in hardness correlate with the precipitation of α and ω phases in the β titanium matrix. The results of the study show that Ti-12Cr-1Fe-3Al is the most creep resistant followed by Ti-12Cr-3Al and Ti-12Cr.
