Using the methods of X-ray diffraction analysis, the concentration-dependent transformation plasticity effect +TPE) is investigated during hydrogenation of the technically pure titanium (VT1-0) irradiated on one side with a low-energy high-current electron beam in a SOLO facility using three 50 μs pulses at the pulse repetition frequency 0.3 s –1 and the beam energy density W = 18 J/cm 2 . Its irradiation is performed in an argon atmosphere at the residual pressure 0.02 Pa. It is found out that the concentration-dependent TPE in the course of hydrogenation is due to the low stability state of the α-Ti crystal lattice formed in the specimen surface layer upon its e-beam irradiation. Relaxation of the elastic plane macrostresses occurs as a result of the development of concentration inhomogeneity of hydrogen or formation of α″-Ti and ω-Ti martensitic phases.
