Consideration is given to the effect of thermal annealing on the structure, character of plastic flow localization and mechanical properties of VT1-0 specimens subjected to preliminary ultrasonic treatment or equal-channel angular pressing. Fracture during annealing of the submicrocrystalline structure is shown to be responsible for smearing of localized deformation bands of various scales. Annealing at 450°C for 1 hour allows an increase in plasticity of submicrocrystalline titanium with preserving high strength properties of the material.
