Titanium and its alloys are of interest for defense and space applications due to their high strength, light weight and corrosion resistance. Due to the HCP structure of titanium, its deformation behavior is quite different from the high symmetry FCC and BCC structures, especially when subjected to shear type of loading conditions. It should be noted that under different multiaxial loading conditions, shear conditions might prevail within the grains of titanium. Molecular dynamics simulations have been carried out to investigate the high strain-rate deformation of single crystal Ti under shear deformation. We characterize the deformation response of single crystal Ti in terms of the stress-strain profile, deformation twinning, dislocations and structural phase transformation. It should be noted that even this study presents Ti, similar studies can be initiated for other HCP materials such as Mg.
