Due to its high strength, high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance and biocompatibility, Commercially Pure (CP) titanium alloy is one of the most important titanium alloys and widely used in many areas such as the chemical, nuclear and biomedical industries. Superplastic Forming (SPF) is a cost-effective process for manufacturing complex shaped structural components and superplastic forming of CP titanium alloy is very attractive in many areas due to the inert nature of this alloy. The project aims at enhancing the elongation-to-failure value of the alloy and investigating the superplastic behavior of the commercially pure titanium alloy.
