Abstract

The effects of microstructures on notch fatigue propertes of a Ti-29Nb-13Ta-4.6Zr alloy (TNTZ) subjected to various thermo-mechanical treatments were investigated in this study. The notch fatigue strengths of TNTZ subjected to aging at 673 K and 723 K after solution treatment or cold rolling at stress concentration factors of 1 (without the notch), 2 and 6 in both low and high cycle fatigue life regions are greater than those of as-cold rolled and as-solutionized TNTZ, and TNTZ subjected to aging at 598 K after solution treatment or cold rolling. A single fatigue crack initiates on a specimen surface and at the tip of the notch at stress concentration factors of 1 and 2. While, a few cracks initiate the tip of the notch having a stress concentration factor of 6. Notch sensitivity factor of TNTZ is almost equal to or smaller than those of other materials such as Ti-6Al-4V, CP-Ti, S35C, S45C and SUS304. It is considered that the notch sensitivity factor decreases with decreasing the width of lath like α phase and its volume fraction.
