Abstract : The purpose of the research was to determine the effect of aluminum on the fundamental mechanical properties of titanium and how such changes are related to the emergence of aluminum as the principal alloying element for titanium. A clearer understanding of the role of aluminum in enhancing the engineering mechanical properties of titanium, it is hoped, would point the way toward development of improved alloys. The report concludes with a discussion of the results from this point of view.
