Alloy Design and Property Evaluation of Ti-Mo-Nb-Sn Alloy for Biomedical Applications

PS Nnamchi, RE Njoku, OA Fasuba

Abstract


Ti-Mo alloy containing Nb and Sn were arc melted and composition analyzed by EDX. The XRD analysis indicates that the crystal structure and   mechanical properties are sensitive to Sn concentration. A combination of Sn and Nb elements in synergy hindered formation athermal w phase and significantly enhanced b phase stability. The low elastic modulus and good ductility as observed implied that this alloy can be more suitable for biomedical application than the conventional metallic biomaterials from better mechanical compatibility perspective.
