Micro-hardness and Young\'s modulus of a thermo-mechanically processed biomedical titanium alloy
Mohsin Talib Mohammed, Zahid A. Khan, Geetha M. and Arshad N. Siddiquee

    This paper presents a study on the influence of different thermo-mechanical processing (TMP) parameters on some required properties such as micro-hardness and Young`s modulus of a novel near beta alloy Ti-20.6Nb-13.6Zr-0.5V (TNZV). The TMP scheme comprises of hot working above and below beta phase, solutionizing treatment above and below beta phase coupled with different cooling rates. Factorial design of experiment is used to systematically collect data for micro-hardness and Young`s modulus. Validity of assumptions related to the collected data is checked through several diagnostic tests. The analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to determine the significance of the main and interaction effects. Finally, optimization of the TMP process parameters is also done to achieve optimum values of the micro-hardness and Young`s modulus.
