A calculation program based on the density functional theory (DFT) is applied to study the structural, mechanical, and electronic properties of TiV alloys with symmetric structure under high pressure. We calculate the dimensionless ratio, elastic constants, shear modulus, Young’s modulus, bulk modulus, ductile-brittle transition, material anisotropy, and Poisson’s ratio as functions of applied pressure. Results suggest that the critical pressure of structural phase transition is 42.05 GPa for the TiV alloy, and structural phase transition occurs when the applied pressure exceeds 42.05 GPa. High pressure can improve resistance to volume change, as well as the ductility and atomic bonding, but the strongest resistances to elastic and shear deformation occur at
for TiV alloy. Furthermore, the results of the density of states (DOS) indicate that the TiV alloy presents metallicity. High pressure disrupts the structural stability of the TiV alloy with symmetry, thereby inducing structural phase transition.
