Abstract

A unique chevron-like morphology of the hexagonal α phase has been observed in Ti–5Al–5Mo–5V–3Cr. The α precipitates were formed by direct ageing at 400 °C following solution treatment in the β phase field. Chevrons were imaged using both backscattered and transmitted electrons and were found to have a complex internal structure. It is hypothesized that the microstructure is developed through multiple site nucleation from ω particles formed during air cooling.
