Abstract

Microstructural investigations on a series of (Ti70.5 Fe 29.5)100-x Snx alloys with x=5, 7, and 9 reveal that Sn addition is effective in introducing both structural and spatial heterogeneities in ultrafine eutectic composites stemming from a large temperature difference between two eutectic temperatures upon solidification. The microstructural heterogeneities in these ultrafine eutectic composites strongly enhance the room temperature compressive plasticity up to ∼15.7%.
