Abstract

There is a growing demand for titanium. The aircraft industry is the driving force behind the demand for titanium.Titanium alloy exhibits an excellent combination of bio-compatibility, corrosion resistance, strength and toughness. The influence of diverse heat treatments on microstructural and tribological characteristics of Ti-6Al-4V alloy, which is used as implant material in biomedical engineering, Aerospace applications has been investigated on a pin-on-disc. Aim of the present study is to explore the possibility of heat treated Ti-6Al-4V alloy wear resistance improvement, examining the effects of different aging conditions on alloy microstructure and mechanical properties, as well as on alloy wear characteristics under different wear conditions on heat treated Ti-6Al-4V alloy using Design of Experiments.
