    • Abstract


      This paper presents the results on the influence of different thermo-mechanical processing (TMP) on themechanical properties and electrochemical behavior of newmetastable 𝛽-alloy Ti–20.6Nb–13.6Zr–0.5V (TNZV). TMP included hot working in below 𝛽-transus, solution heat treatments at same temperature in different cooling rates in addition to aging. Depending upon the TMP conditions, a wide range of microstructures with varying spatial distributions and morphologies of equiaxed/elongated 𝛼, 𝛽 phases were attained, allowing for a wide range of mechanical and electrochemical properties to be achieved. The corrosion behavior of studied alloy was evaluated in Ringer’s solution at 37°C using open-circuit potential-time and potentiodynamic polarization measurements.
