Formability of Ti–29Nb–13Ta–4.6Zr Biomaterial at High Temperatures
Ti-29Nb-13Ta-4.6Zr has been recently developed as a biomaterial showing most potential. The study here was conducted to investigate the high temperature deformation behavior under uniaxial tensile stress at various temperatures (i.e., 700°C, 800°C and 900°C) with different initial strain rates at atmospheric condition. Results of the high temperature tensile tests show a significant improved elongation-to-failure of this novel biomaterial at elevated temperatures compared to open literature, and hence its formability potential.
