This talk will center on the impact of SRO on the mechanical behavior of Ti alloys. Specifically, we have looked at the effect of O and Al solutes with a combination of advanced TEM, nanomechanical testing and bulk testing of model alloys. In Ti-O alloys we have performed tensile deformation at low, room and high temperatures at various strain rates and performed microstructural analysis to systematically map out the effect of solute content, temperature and strain rate on the planar to wavy slip transition. This transition will be discussed in the context of theoretical models of O solute effects on dislocation cross-slip. In Ti-Al alloys we have used energy filtered imaging and 4D-STEM to map the local SRO and strain with nanometer precision, even during in situ nanomechanical testing. Lastly, we have investigated the phenomenon of electroplasticity with Ti-Al alloys and found interesting similarities between the effect of SRO and electrical pulsing on the defect structure.
