... medical replacement structures such as hip and knee implants. Titanium actually allows bone growth to adhere to the implants, thus titanium implants are more durable than those made of other materials. The only major use of zinc-base alloys is for small parts such as locks, and small automotive parts...

..., Dieter has suggested that strain aging is responsible for the knee in the S-N curve ( Ref 3.29 ). The tests he reviewed covered a broad base of metals, including carbon steels, titanium, molybdenum, and aluminum with 7% Mg. It seems that when a material shows strain aging in a tension test, it also...
