Martensitic transformation and tensile properties of 4 to 5 mol%Sn-doped Ti–16 mol%Nb alloys consisting of biocompatible elements were investigated to provide superelasticity for biomedical applications as a function of heat treatment and Sn content. Martensitic transformation (bcc to orthorhombic structure) is accelerated at such quenching conditions that the bcc parent phase is slightly decomposed. Martensitic transformation temperature decreases rapidly with increasing Sn content. In-situ… CONTINUE READING
