In this paper, the relationships between the thermomechanical treatments (TMT), the microstructural evolution the mechanical properties of Ti17 alloy were investigated. The results indicate the coarsening behavior of lamellar α was sensitive to the aging temperature during the process of TMT. The thickness of lamellar α changed from 0.19 to 0.38 μm with an increase in the aging temperature. Moreover, both tensile properties and impact toughness vary with the thickness of lamellar α. The tensile strength increases with the increase of the thickness of lamellar α the plasticity and impact toughness the opposite trend. The quantitative investigations found that there is a linear relationship between the tensile properties and the thickness of lamellar α the tensile properties could be adjusted in the range of 1191~1062 MPa and 1163~1039 MPa to obtain ultimate tensile strength and yield strength as well as 11~16% elongation and 23~33% reduction of area by varying the thickness of lamellar α. Meanwhile, the impact toughness could be adjusted in the range of 46 ~53 J/cm2
. The high correlation coefficients imply that the linear equation is reliable to describe the relationships between the mechanical properties and the thickness of lamellar α for Ti17 alloy.
