Titanium-based alloys have attracted significant interests in the aviation industry owing to their desirable mechanical properties at elevated temperature and substantial weight savings compared to nickel-based superalloys. However, the production of titanium alloy parts remains challenging due to the brittleness at room temperature, which may in principle be mitigated by structural control and refinement. The overall aim of this project is to develop a lattice Monte Carlo method applicable to titanium alloys and further our understanding on the effect of alloying on titanium alloy structure.
