Resum
Titanium and its alloys have many attractive properties including high specific strength, low density, and excellent corrosion resistance. Besides, titanium and the Ti6Al4V alloy have long been recognized as materials with high biocompatibility. These properties have led to the use of these materials in biomedical applications. Despite these advantages, the lack of good wear resistance makes difficult the use of titanium and Ti6Al4V in some biomedical applications, like articulating components o...
