Abstract: In this paper, the high temperature, deformation behaviour of beta titanium alloy Ti-20V-4Al-1Sn sheet is studied by performing uniaxial tension experiments at three different strain rates at high temperatures of 700°C, 750°C and 800°C. The stress-strain curves for these temperatures show strain rate sensitivity, yield point phenomena and continuous flow, softening patterns. Microstructures of deformed specimens at several representative deformation stages and different strain rates are studied using an optica…
