Selective Laser Melting of Novel Titanium-Tantalum Alloy as Orthopaedic Biomaterial


Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

About this book


This book investigates the microstructural and mechanical properties of titanium-tantalum (TiTa) alloy formed using selective laser melting (SLM). TiTa has potential orthopaedic biomedical applications thanks to its high strength to modulus ratio. However, because it is difficult to obtain, it is still not widely used. The book describes how SLM is utilized to form this alloy, and provides a better understanding of the SLM process in porous lattice structure fabrication and its control through statistical modelling.
