Paper Title:
Microstructure and Pseudoelasticity of Ti-Nb-Si Based Alloys with Biocompatible Alloying Elements
  Abstract

We have newly designed a metastable β Ti-Nb-Si based alloy with biocompatible alloying elements without containing toxic V or Al for orthodontic applications. Microstructures and pseudoelastic behavior of β Ti-Nb-Si alloys were investigated in order to correlate the pseudoelasticity and microstructure together with martensite transformation. Nb and Si alloying to the present alloy make β phase to be stable. It is found that metastable β phase is favorable to display pseudoelastic behavior than stable or unstable β phase. Optical microscope (OM) revealed that stress-induced martensitic transformation takes place during room temperature deformation in the present alloys. Within the alloys having β (bcc) phase studied the alloy with low content of Si appeared to exhibit a dominant behavior for stress-induced martensitic transformation than that with high content of Si. After recrystallization heat treatment pseudoelasticity of the present alloy appeared to be prominent. The pseudoelastic behavior of this alloy was correlated to the stress-induced martensite transformation. Pseudoelasticity of the present alloys is hindered by the development of {001}<110> rotated cube component.
