To investigate the recrystallisation characteristics of Ti-6Al-4V and the novel alloy Timetal 575 (Ti575), twelve 100mm diameter double cone samples were forged, sectioned then heat treated in the beta phase field. The double cone geometry chosen provided a gradient of strain in each sample with a strain profile provided by output from a finite element modelling package. The matrix of tests covered three forging temperatures and two deformation rates and was followed by heat treatments to two temperatures for two different times at temperature generating a recrystallised microstructure as a function of these parameters. The extent of microstructural refinement for both alloys was analysed using optical microscopy of the as-received and recrystallised micro-structure.
