The objective of this contribution is to summarise the range of α crystallography and distribution that arises from the β to α transformation and the hot working of α/β alloys and their recrystallisation and relate these features to the slip character of these alloys. α morphology and distribution have been mapped as a function of β stabilizer content and aging temperature. A dominant transgranular grouping of α variants with a common close packed direction characterizes transformation patterns across the entire range of β stabilizer content. Recrystallization during thermomechanical processing in the α/β regime has been studied with the help of fine scale, orientation image mapping techniques. Two distinct recrystallization processes have been identified. The first is associated with the well-known α globularisation process. An alternative recrystallization process has also been described in which newly recrystallized α and β grains form with the Burgers orientation relationship with each other. This process has been called epitaxial recrystallization. The role of transformation and recrystallisation texture on the plasticity of titanium alloys is assessed through quantitative EBSD /TEM based analysis of slip systems in the α phase and slip transfer between the α and β phases.
