|Abstract:||In this study, we explored the Ti-Nb-Fe system to find an optimal cost-effective composition with the lowest elastic modulus and the lowest added Nb content. Six Ti-(31-4x)Nb-(1+0.5x)Fe ingots were prepared and Nb was substituted with Fe, starting at Ti-31Nb-1.0Fe and going up to Ti-11Nb-3.5Fe (wt%). The ingots were subjected to cold rolling, recrystallization and solution treatment, followed by water-quenching (WQ), furnace cooling (FC) or step-quenching to 350 °C, which caused massive formation of isothermal ω phase. All the water-quenched alloys displayed athermal ω phase, which is apparently the result of fully collapsed β phase. The Fe content improved the compressive strength of the alloys. In the FC alloys, substitution with Fe favored the formation of α phase instead of ω phase, giving rise to a solute-rich β phase with a lattice parameter of 0.3249 nm. Among the FC alloys, the lowest modulus of 83±4 GPa was obtained in the Ti-19Nb-2.5Fe alloy, which exhibited fine and well dispersed α precipitation and absence of ω phase. DSC experiments indicated that the experimental alloys showed varying phase stability during heating|
