Abstract

Mechanical properties of titanium-zirconium binary alloys were investigated in order to reveal their possible use for new biomedical materials and to collect useful data for alloy design through a hardness test, a tensile test, and optical microscopy. The hardness of the alloy containing 50% zirconium was approximately 2.5 times as large as the hardness of pure titanium and pure zirconium. Tensile tests showed a similar tendency. No changes between hardness of as cast specimens and as homogenized specimens were observed, nor were changes in microstructures noted. Comparisons between the Ti-6Al-4V alloy and the Ti-Zr-6Al-4V alloy indicated that a titanium-zirconium alloy could provide a base material for a new biomedical alloy. From these results, it was concluded that new alloys for biomedical materials should be designed as titanium-zirconium base alloys.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
