Effects of carbon addition on microstructure of Ti-V alloys formed at high temperatures were investigated. By adding carbon to pure Ti and Ti-V binary alloys, precipitation of TiC occurs. With increase of vanadium content, β/ (β+ TiC) phase boundary shifts to the lower carbon side slightly. On the other hand (α+ β) I (α + β + TiC) boundaries shifts largely with decreases in α fraction and peritectoid reaction temperature by addition of vanadium. Addition of carbon to a Ti-15V-3Cr-3Sn-3Al alloy results in extensive suppression of recovery during hot deformation of β phase by carbon in solution. Also age hardening kinetics of Ti-15V-3Cr-3Sn-3Al after β solutionizing was accelerated by carbon addition.
