Titanium Alloys

  • Toshiro Kobayashi


In Japan, because there is no munitions industry or aircraft industry owing to the social conditions of the country, it is imperative to find applications for titanium alloys in the other fields. For that reason, there has been a fluctuation in the research and development of titanium alloys. However, attention has been paid to the application of titanium alloys as structural materials for transport machines especially on the automobile industry, as a biomaterial for dentistry, and as a material for instruments used at cryogenic temperatures. Increasing efforts are advancing toward the study of titanium alloys.
