Titanium alloys are used in several fields such as aerospace industry or biomedical. They are increasingly used in marine applications, a highly corrosive environment. We chose titanium alloys for their good properties such as high mechanical strength, low density and excellent corrosion resistance. This study is focused on titanium alloys potentially interesting to be used in marine transports, and mainly for the boats fittings such as a winch for example.
