30 comprehensive peer-reviewed papers from leading experts in the field have been divided into 7 major categories:
Processing and TI 6Al 4V -- 3 papers address the effects of titanium manufacturing and processing, with a particular focus on TI 6Al 4V.
New Alloys -- The distinct properties and advantages of several new titanium alloys are discussed in 5 papers.
Porous Coatings -- 3 papers focus on issues pertaining to the mechanical properties of porous coatings.
Corrosion, Laboratory Studies -- The basic principles of corrosion of titanium and its alloys are explored in four papers.
Fretting and Wear Testing -- 5 papers present the results of laboratory studies on fretting corrosion and wear of titanium.
Biological Issues -- Various biological responses to titanium are presented in six papers.
Clinical Experience -- Clinical experience with such procedures as total hip and knee replacement are among the studies included in 4 papers.
Important reference volume for industry professionals involved with the research, development, marketing and management of surgical implant devices; government personnel in related research and regulatory capacities; metallurgy and materials science researchers, and university professors and researchers in the biomedical implantfield.
