Ti-based alloys have increased importance for biomedical applications due to their excellent properties. In particular, the two recently developed TiZrPdSi(Nb) alloys, with a predominant β-Ti phase microstructure, have good mechanical properties, such as a relatively low Young’s modulus and high hardness. Results suggest that the TiZrPdSi(Nb) alloys can be considered as excellent candidates for orthopaedical uses.
