Edited Volume

The first section of the book includes the following topics: fusion-based additive manufacturing (AM) processes of titanium alloys and their numerical modelling, mechanism of ?-case formation mechanism during investment casting of titanium, genesis of gas-containing defects in cast titanium products. Second section includes topics on behavior of the (? + ?) titanium alloys under extreme pressure and temperature conditions, hot and super plasticity of titanium (? + ?) alloys and some machinability aspects of titanium alloys in drilling. Finally, the third section includes topics on different surface treatment methods including nanotube-anodic layer formation on two phase titanium alloys in phosphoric acid for biomedical applications, chemico-thermal treatment of titanium alloys applying nitriding process for improving corrosion resistance of titanium alloys.
