"With the increase in production of titanium in recent years has come a great interest in the mechanical properties and in the possible uses of this metal. Due to the affinity of titanium for oxygen, nitrogen, carbon, and hydrogen, and the market effect of these elements on the mechanical properties, much of the work previously reported is unreliable. As purer commercial grades of titanium and high purity iodide titanium have become available for examination, research has been undertaken to correct and expand the knowledge of the properties of titanium. Although the uses of titanium are limited at the present time, a considerable amount of time and money is being spent to thoroughly exploit its possibilities and it is expected that titanium will soon hold an established position as one of the more important light metals.
A. The problem.
Statement of the problem. This study was undertaken (1) to determine the textures developed in titanium during cold rolling, (2) to determine why the observed textures of titanium differ from those of other hexagonal metals, and (3) to develop a satisfactory explanation of the deformation textures of titanium"--Introduction, pages 1-2.
