Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to review important aspects of titanium alloy properties, casting methods, and solidification modeling. The survey provides a background on the physical metallurgy of titanium alloys including alloying and microstructure, the investment casting and permanent mold casting processes, modeling of microstructure evolution during casting using both empirical an analytical methods, and macroscopic modeling of casting using both analytical and numerical methods. Special attention is given to modeling issues and future research issues and approaches.
