Paper Title:
Phase Transformation of Biomedical Metastable β Titanium Alloy during Aging
  Abstract

A kind of metastable β type Ti-30Nb-13Zr-0.5Fe (wt.%) alloy for biomedical application was newly designed and developed. In order to exam the phase transformation during aging and its effects on the mechanical properties, the alloy was β solubilized and aged at 350°C-550°C for 4 hours. The microstructures were observed by OM and TEM, and the phase structures were identified by XRD. The tensile tests were performed with various aged microstructures. The results show that a lot of ω phase precipitates during aging at 350°C, leading to the increase of strength and elastic modulus and drastic decrease of plasticity. Aging at 450°C, dot α phase uniformly precipitates from metastable β phase. The good combination of high strength 、high plasticity and low elastic modulus was obtained under this aging condition. With increasing aging temperature and aging time α precipitations coarsen and precipitation free zones (PFZ) along prior β grain boundaries form, which are the main reasons to lower the strength and plasticity.
