|Abstract:||Recent studies involving step-quench (SQ) heat treatments have shown that, unlike classical quench-and-aging (QA) heat treatments, SQ route can favour precipitation mechanisms that are strongly dependent on decomposition of the parent β-phase. In this work, Ti–30Nb and Ti–30Nb–4Sn (wt-%) alloys were subjected to cold-working, recrystallisation and then to either classical or SQ heat treatments at 400°C. Among QA samples, ω-phase is formed in both alloys during the heating ramp. By the SQ route, we found extensive isothermal ω-phase precipitation in Ti–30Nb during aging. On the other hand, a complete suppression of ω-phase in Ti–30Nb–4Sn was observed, thus, α-phase precipitation could take place improving hardness while still preserving a low elastic modulus|
