This set of lectures is on "Phase Transformation in Titanium and Zirconium Alloys" for the Superalloys & High Performance Materials course part 2. This part of the course was taught by Dr Christopher Daniel at The University of Manchester in 2021.

Video 1 describes the effect of different alloying additions on the phase structure of titanium (and zirconium) alloys.

Video 2 describes the phase transformation and microstructural changes that can occur in titanium and zirconium alloys, during heating and cooling at different rates.

Video 3 introduces the Burgers Orientation Relationship (BOR), which describes the crystallographic relationship between the alpha and beta phases in both titanium and zirconium alloys, and can be used to predict 'variant' orientations.

Video 4 shows how the different titanium alloys are classified based on their phase composition, and summarises their different properties and applications.

The live lecture includes poll questions and discussion for the "Phase Transformation in Ti and Zr Alloys" topic and was recorded on Tuesday 16th February 2021.
