Maciej Motyka serves as an Associate Professor at Department of Materials Science, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics of the Rzeszow University of Technology. He graduated from Faculty of Non-Ferrous Metals in AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow in 1998 and earned his PhD degree in 2004 and DSc degree in 2015. Scientific interests of Dr. Motyka cover relationships between processing, microstructure and mechanical properties of advanced structural materials, mainly titanium alloys. His activity is focused on hot plasticity and fine-grained superplasticity phenomena. He is also working on characterization of ultrafine-grained materials – submicrocrystalline aluminium alloys and nanocrystalline titanium – obtained by plastic consolidation and severe plastic deformation methods. Dr. Motyka is an author and co-author of over 90 papers in scientific journals and conference proceedings.

Titanium alloys, due to unique physical and chemical properties (mainly high relative strength combined with very good corrosion resistance), are considered as an important structural metallic material used in hi-tech industries (e.g. aerospace, space technology). This book provides information on new manufacturing and processing methods of single- and two-phase titanium alloys. The eight chapters of this book are distributed over four sections. The first section (Introduction) indicates the main factors determining application areas of titanium and its alloys. The second section (Manufacturing, two chapters) concerns modern production methods for titanium and its alloys. The third section (Thermomechanical and surface treatment, three chapters) covers problems of thermomechanical processing and surface treatment used for single- and two-phase titanium alloys. The fourth section (Machining, two chapters) describes the recent results of high speed machining of Ti-6Al-4V alloy and the possibility of application of sustainable machining for titanium alloys.
