UTM, Ti-6Al-4V, Corrosion, Fatigue, Properties


This research article gives an overview of the extensive research of Ti-6Al-4V from past few decades helped in studying about the features, properties, characteristics and application of aerospace industries. The final objective of study is to obtain the inherent advantages of Ti-6Al-4V like low elasticity modulus, high strength, low density and more resistant to fatigue and corrosion that leads to rely on the required knowledge for the employment of application which improves all physical and mechanical properties.
