Description of the research topic:

Pure Titanium and Zirconium have an allotropic phase transformation which also exists in the alloys too. The scope of the research work to study the kinetics allotropic phase transformation either in commercial purity metals or its alloys. Lamellar structured specimens will be prepared by welding process. The specimens will be deformed and annealed to study the effect of recrystallized structure to the allotropic transformation. The kinetics of recrystallization and allotropic transformation will be studied by DTA or DSC technique. The kinetic equations determined by thermal analysis evaluation techniques. Alloys will be prepared by diffusion at high temperature heat treatment. The diffusivities studied by heat treatment above and below of the characteristic temperatures of the allotropic phase transformation. The microstructure of the alloys will be observed by metallography and electron microscopy.
