A Review on Corrosion Studies of Titanium Alloys

M. Sumalatha, Prof. V.V.S .Kesava Rao


Titanium and its alloys are used for manufacturing for some parts of automobiles, aerospace and artificial implants of human body. These alloys undergo various manufacturing processes like machining, joining, casting depending on the application. When components are made with titanium and its alloys during service, they are subjected to various conditions. There is a need to study the corrosion behaviour of these alloys in various mediums to access the resistivity. Hence in this paper an attempt is made to summarise the works done by earlier researchers on corrosion studies of titanium and its alloys.
