Effects of Nb Content on Young’s Modulus and Tensile Property of Ti-30Ta Alloy for Biomedical Applications
The effects of Nb addition on microstructures, Young’s moduli, tensile properties of Ti-30Ta-xNb (x = 21, 24, 27, 30, wt. %) alloys were investigated in this study. The results show that dual phases containing β phase and a little α" martensite were observed when x = 21 and 24, whereas single β phase is present when x = 27 and 30. A minimum Young’s modulus of 52.13 GPa was obtained in Ti-30Ta-21Nb alloy. Ti-30Ta-xNb alloys exhibit high strength-to-modulus ratios, showing their great potentials to develop as new candidates for biomedical applications.
