The first serious interest in titanium was started in about 1946. Metallurgists reasoned that the high melting point of titanium, 3140 F, might make it applicable for service at elevated temperatures. In addition, the low density of titanium, approximately 40 per cent that of stainless steel, added to the interest in this metal. The potentiality that titanium might possess a high strength-to-weight ratio for use at elevated temperatures made it appear particularly attractive for military aircraft, especially the jet planes designed for supersonic speeds.
