In this study, we investigated the effects of strain rate on tensile deformation behaviour in Ti-6Al-4V sheet at cryogenic temperature. X-ray diffraction (XRD) was used to identify the crystallographic orientation of rolled Ti-6Al-4V. A series of tensile tests were performed by constant strain rate method (CRS) with variable strain rates (i.e., on the order of 1x10-2 to 10-4•s-1). Liquid nitrogen (LN2) was used to mimic cryogenic environment, and for the thermal equilibrium the specimens were immersed in the vessel containing liquid nitrogen for ~10 minutes before tensile testing, and the temperature condition was continuously maintained during the testing. Microstructure and fracture surface was analysed by polarised light microscopy and scanning electron microscope (SEM). Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) was further used to characterise local deformation behaviour. Deformation twinning is occurred at cryogenic tempearture, which is rather different to the deformation at room temperature. It is thought that the twinning induced deformation behaviour may lead to a strength enhancement and a rate dependent ductility improvement.
