The even-even Ti isotopic chain, from A=42 to 70, has been studied within the nuclear shell-model framework by employing an effective Hamiltonian which is derived by way of many-body perturbation theory from a chiral potential with two- and three-body forces, and includes three-body contributions which account for Pauli principle violations in nuclei with more than two valence particles. We consider Ca40 as a closed core and a model space spanned by the neutron and proton 0f1p orbitals with the addition of the 0g9/2 orbital for neutrons. Calculated two-neutron separation energies and excitation energies of the yrast 2+ states are reported and compared with the experimental data, which are available up to Ti62. The present study intends to investigate the effects of the adopted effective interactions on the evolution of the shell structure.
