Abstract : The temperature at which the martensite transformation from beta solid solution to alpha prime supersaturated solid solution takes place has been measured in binary alloys of titanium with columbium, tantalum, tungsten, iron, chromium, and manganese. In all cases, the Ms curve decreases with increasing amount of all elements. The critical concentration above which the beta structure is retained after quenching in the above mentioned binary alloys is discussed in connection with results published by other investigators.
