Brief description This project aims to understand the response of deformation-induced products in metastable titanium alloys to external loading. Metastable titanium alloys are mechanically tuneable because they can readily twin and phase transform under load during forming or in service. This project will develop a crystal plasticity model that accounts for these deformation mechanisms. These new alloys are expected to make titanium a viable lightweight alternative for components in the aerospace and transport industries, with the weight savings helping reduce overall energy consumption.
