Abstract

Fully-reversed bending fatigue tests were conducted on both the as-received and finished grade one commercially pure titanium. Finishing is done by a process developed by TiMesh Inc., and known as TiMesh finishing. Results show that TiMesh finishing can not only increase material fatigue life at least by two times at the stress level of 25 Ksi, but also eliminate the anisotropic fatigue behavior observed in the as-received materials.
