Titanium alloys such as Ti-6Al-4V are widely used in the aerospace domain worldwide; consequently, they have been extensively investigated, and the accumulated data has facilitated their use in the construction of structural members. In contrast, commercial pure (CP) Ti, which is cheaper than Ti alloys is widely used in the general industry, especially in the marine domain in Japan because it exhibits superior seawater corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. However, CP titanium has a strong anisotropy and consists of an hcp crystal structure; therefore, the strength data are insufficient owing to its short use history as a structural material, and some of its mechanical material properties remain unclear. Herein, the effect of mean stress and stress concentration on the fatigue strength of CP Grade 2 titanium was evaluated for the application range expansion of CP titanium. The results indicated that the fatigue limit in the longitudinal direction was 80–84% that in the transverse direction for smooth specimens. However, no significant difference was noted in the fatigue limit in both the directions for notched specimens. Furthermore, it was noted that it is necessary to apply at least Sa-0.5Su line to design the safe side in CP Grade 2 titanium.
