The role of grain size and distribution on the cyclic stability of titanium Academic Article uri icon


  • The role of grain refinement and microstructural inhomogeneities on the cyclic stability of ultrafine-grained (UFG), coarse-grained and bimodal titanium of commercial purity was investigated. The observed superior fatigue performance and the proven biocompatibility of UFG Ti promote its utility as a biomaterial. © 2008 Acta Materialia Inc.
