As the content of the β-phase in the series OT4, VT14, VT16 increases, the hardening effect of cold-work hardening decays and is observed only at the initial stage of deformation (Fig. 18). Phase transformations in the process of deformation also affect the hardening of the alloys. Alloy VT16, which is distinguished by the lowest effect of hardening as → β phase transformation. Alloys the result of plastic deformation, features an α ← VT1-0, OT4 and AT15, having the greatest effect of cold-work hardening, featured no phase transformations in deformation.
