1. Novel multi-functional alloys group
The group investigates the multi-functional properties of beta-type titanium alloys. By alloying with transitional metal and simple metal elements, the obtained materials exhibit unusual properties, such as high strength / low elastic modulus combination that is desired by biomedical implant applications, as well as superelasticity and a high damping capacity. Novel deformation mechanisms that allow rapid grain refinement of these alloys to nano-grained structures during cold working are also being studied.
