Abstract

This work reports simultaneous achievement of high strength and large tensile ductility in a beta titanium alloy manufactured by selective laser melting (SLM). The SLM-produced samples present a unique microstructure and great mechanical behavior due to fast cooling in SLM process. Simultaneous improvement in yield strength (∼592±21 MPa), ultimate tensile strength (716±14 MPa) and ductility (37±5%) of SLM-produced sample results from the combination of fine columnar grains and sub-grains, strong texture and the transformation-induced plasticity (TRIP) and “hard-wraps-soft” effects. The large amount of sub-grain boundaries and strong texture delay the initiation of martensitic transformation in the SLM-produced sample, thereby increasing its yield strength. © 2019
