The strain-hardening exponent (n) is considered to be numerically equal to the uniform plastic strain for materials which exhibit a power low true stress true strain relation. In Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo alloy a considerable deviation between the uniform plastic strain and the strain hardening exponent has been observed irrespective of the variations in microstructures and grain size. The present investigation indicates that a power law true stress true strain relation of the type σ = Kεn may not be valid for this material.
