The formation of solid solutions in titanium after its alloying with zirconium under the influence of compression plasma flows and high-current electron beams is considered in the work. It is established that these types of influence with absorbed energy density up to 30 J/cm2 result in the formation of the substitution solid solution a-Ti(Zr) on the basis of the low-temperature titanium phase. An increase in both pulse number and absorbed energy density provides a more uniform zirconium distribution in the modified layer. The microhardness of the modified layers of titanium is up to 5 GPa.
