Abstract

TRANSFORMATION of the retained β-phase in certain titanium alloys has been shown to involve a metastable phase, designated1 ω. A similar mode of transformation has been reported for zirconium–niobium and zirconium–molybdenum alloys (Miodownik, A, P., and Eliasz, W., unpublished work, 1955, and ref. 2).
