In this study, the effect of α and β those stabilizers on the microstructure and phase transformation of cast Ti-6wt%Al-4wt%V alloy at various solution treatment temperatures was investigated. The dependence of the transformation behavior of the β phase during the solution treatment and its dependence was determined by the partitioning of α and β stabilizing elements. Solution treatments were conducted at 850 ~ 1050 ℃ for 0.5 h and, followed by water quenching. Aging treatments at 550 ℃ for 24 h were then performed. The α' martensite was transformed from the β phase when the concentration of vanadium in the β phase was less than 4.27 at%, while the metastable β phase did not transform to α' martensite when the concentration of vanadium in the β phase was over 5.14 at%.
