Abstract

This paper presents a study of texture investigations in a cold-rolled VT-35 titanium alloy with hydrogen concentration varied within 0.04–0.55 wt. %. It is shown that the character of the rolling texture depends on hydrogen contents and is caused by changes in the mechanism of plastic deformation of the alloy. The poorly deformable alloy may be plastified by introducing small additions of hydrogen (0.06–0.12wt.%.). The texture formed in this case has a relatively strong {112}–{100}111 component and a lowintense 111 component.
