• A newly near-β titanium alloy Ti684 was designed to perform the study.
• Relationship between microstructure and dynamic mechanical properties was studied.
• Effects of dynamic mechanical property on ballistic performance was investigated.
• Higher critical fracture strain attributed to better ballistic performance.
A comprehensive study of the newly developed near-β titanium alloy Ti684 has been carried out to determine the influence of the dynamic strength, dynamic hardness and critical failure strain on the ballistic impact properties. Two heat treatments of Ti684, namely β solution-treatment and α + β solution-treatment followed by aging, were carried out and the results were compared with Ti–6Al–4V. Ballistic impact tests were conducted on 7 mm thick front plates with a 20 mm thick A3 steel backing plate, using 7.62 mm armor piercing projectiles. The ballistic performance was evaluated by measuring the residual depth of penetration (DOP) in the A3 steel backing plates. It was found that the DOP values did not show obvious corresponding relation with both dynamic strength and dynamic hardness. The 800 °C solution +550 °C aged Ti684, which had the maximal dynamic strength, presented the worst ballistic performance, with a maximum DOP of 12.5 mm. In addition, the Ti–6Al–4V plate in the study with highest dynamic hardness did not show the best ballistic performance, having a DOP of 11.86 mm. However, as the critical failure strain increased, the DOP of the A3 steel backings were observed to decrease. This relationship was revealed from post ballistic microstructural observations.
