New Research Paper On restructuring the microstructure of Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy for Surface Engineering..

We have recently had a research paper published, entitled: On restructuring the microstructure of Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy before surface engineering. This paper focuses on the effect of heat treatment on the microstructure of medical-grade Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy, with an objective to acquire a globular microstructure suitable for subsequent surface treatment such as Laser Shock Peening. This work not only offer a straightforward way to develop a globular microstructure, but also reveal the corresponding microstructure in Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy at various temperatures for future metallurgical research. This work is significant because it offers an applicable way to restructure uniform microstructure in Ti-6Al-7Nb to eliminate the effects of heat treatment such as hot/cold rolling on the misorientation before laser shock peening for microstructural analysis.

Well done to Xiaojun Shen for publishing another paper from his PhD thesis on The Study of Mechanical and Biological Properties of Orthopaedic-grade Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy subject to Laser Shock Peening..
