Among the various significant questions affecting titanium metallurgy, the effect of interstitials, more specifically oxygen, on the (mechanical) properties of titanium alloys remains one of the most critical issues. For decades, oxygen has been considered as a detrimental element, leading to drastic embrittlement. However, there is still an important lack of knowledge on underlying mechanisms regarding this effect.
This talk proposes a new insight on these facts, based on an extensive work performed on Ti-Zr-O alloys displaying high oxygen concentration (between 0.4 and 1wt%). Two different aspects of great interest are discussed: (1) the determination of the atomic scale structure of Ti-O alloys, as a function of the chemical composition, with special attention to possible local ordering or local oxygen-driven structural modification. (2) The impact of oxygen content on: (a) the macroscopical properties (resistance/ductility trade-off) and: (b) the operative deformation mechanisms, at room temperature.
