In this paper, the cyclic stress amplitude controlled high-cycle fatigue properties and final fracture behavior of commercially pure titanium (Grade 2) are presented and discussed. The material characterization was developed and put forth for selection and use in a spectrum of applications spanning the industries of aerospace, defense, chemical, marine, and commercial products. Test specimens were prepared from the as-received plate stock of the material with the stress axis both parallel (longitudinal) and perpendicular (transverse) to the rolling direction of the plate. The test specimens were cyclically deformed at a constant load ratio of 0.1, at different values of ...
