The results of investigation of the influence of the structural element size and phase state of the Ti – 45 wt.% Nb and Zr – 1 wt.% Nb binary alloys on their mechanical properties are presented. The structural states of the alloys with the structural elements of different dimensions were formed from the ultrafine-grained state via annealing. The curves of dependence of the yield strength and microhardness on the average size of the structural elements, d – 1/2 , are obtained using the Hall–Petch relation. It is shown that for the Zr – 1 wt.% Nb alloy, the Hall–Petch relation is fulfilled in the entire range of sizes under study, from ultrafine-grained to finegrained states 0.2–1.9 μm. For the Ti – 45 wt.% Nb alloy, in the analysis of the Hall–Petch relationship within the structural element size range 0.43–45 μm, its phase composition is taken into consideration, specifically, the presence of dispersion-strengthened β-phase grains, α-phase subgrains, nonequilibrium nanosized ω- phase, and the bimodal grain-subgrain structure.
