    Abstract

    The initiation and early propagation of short fatigue cracks has been studied in detail in two alpha / beta titanium alloys as a function of microstructure. Detailed metallography is presented relating short crack growth rates to the microstructural features present. The work shows the significant differences in short crack propagation rates which can be achieved by microstructural changes within a single alloy.
