Processing of nanostructured titanium for use in medical implants - Dormant

Commercial purity (CP) titanium alloys such as Ti-6% Al-4% V are in wide use for medical implants from hip and knee replacements to dental implants for crowns and orthodontal purposes. These materials are effective but the applications are limited by the overall strength of the alloy. An increase in strength would permit the use of smaller parts and less invasive surgery.

Microstructure, Microtexture and Properties of Ultrafine-Grained Metals and Alloys Processes by Severe Plastic Deformation

Tribological behaviour of ultrafine-grained alloys formed by severe plastic deformation

Materials with submicron- or nano-scaled grains produced by severe plastic deformation (SPD) offer new structural and functional properties for innovative products in a wide range of applications. The aims of this study are to understand the effect of SPD processing on wear behaviour of materials, to seek a way to use SPD processing to improve the mechanical properties of materials and their wear resistance.
