Titanium and its alloys are commonly preferred implant materials for hard tissue applications. Today more than 4.4 million people have an internal fixation device and over 1.3 million people possess an artificial joint. Not only is there high demand for orthopedic surgeries for new patients every year, but there is also an even higher demand for patients who must receive revision surgeries. In order to enhance the properties of titanium based implant materials, different pretreatment and coating techniques are commonly used. Calcium-phosphate coatings are the most favorable method to upgrade the osteointegration properties of biomaterials. Porous structure of hydroxyapatite enables osteoblast attachment, proliferation and finally leads to osteointegration of the implant material. Biological performance of the coated implant can be improved by substitution of various ions. The goal of this study is to reduce implant rejection caused by the human body and increase the implants lifetime as this new generation orthopedic implants are produced. Mimicking the bone structure by coating metallic scaffold with co-doped Hydroxyapatite in effective way enable strong bone-implant integration. The aim is to prepare a new generation of coating on Ti6Al4V implant. Coated plates were evaluated in terms of their mechanical properties.

Gentamicin release from a hydroxyapatite - Gelatin composite
Yaylaoglu, MB; Korkusuz, Feza; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (1997-05-01)
This study was carried out to develop a calcium phosphate-gelatin composite implant that would mimic the structure and function of bone to fill voids or gaps as well as to release bioactive compounds like drugs, hormones, etc to help tissue repair. XDS analysis of the calcium phosphate prepared revealed a calcium to phosphorus ratio of 2.30, which is significantly higher than that found in hydroxyapatite. Crystallisation of calcium phosphate within gelatin membrane also yielded a similar composition. The di...
Efficient fabrication of ultrafine-grained 316L stainless steel surfaces for orthopaedic applications
Tufan, Yiğithan; Efe, Mert; Ercan, Batur (Informa UK Limited, 2019-10-13)
Commonly used severe plastic deformation (SPD) methods are suitable for fabrication of bulk nano and ultrafine-grained metals. Drawbacks of these methods include durability of dies, geometrical restrictions and reduced ductility of the products. In this study, two common machining techniques used in manufacturing of orthopaedic components, turning and milling, were applied on 316L stainless steel as surface SPD to refine the surface microstructures of the workpiece. Machining with optimised parameters resul...
Investigating the effects of hardening of aluminium alloys on equal-channel angular pressing-A finite-element study
Karpuz, P.; Simsir, C.; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Elsevier BV, 2009-03-15)
Equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) is a promising severe plastic deformation method for production of ultrafine-grained bulk metals and alloys with considerably improved mechanical properties. In this study, numerical experiments were carried out to investigate the effect of strain hardening of aluminum alloys on the process performance of ECAP via finite element modeling. In the constitutive model, isothermal-plane strain, frictionless condition was assumed. The numerical results showed that strain hard...
The effect of hot-deformation on mechanical properties and age hardening characteristics of Al-Mg-Si based wought aluminum alloys
Tan, Evren; Ögel, Bilgehan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2006)
Microstructural and mechanical characterizations of heat treatable Al-Mg-Si-Cu based wrought aluminum alloys have been studied. The aim of this work was to produce fine grained, high strength alloy by adjusting processing conditions: deformation, solutionizing and aging. First, primary characterization was carried out via SEM-EDS analyses and tensile tests. Then an extensive experimental study has been carried out on two sets of samples. The first set has been studied to determine the ideal conditions for s...
Characterization and fatigue behavior of Ti-6Al-4V foams
Aşık, Emin Erkan; Bor, Şakir; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2012)
Porous Ti-6Al-4V alloys are widely used in the biomedical applications for hard tissue implantation due to its biocompatibility and elastic modulus being close to that of bone. In this study, porous Ti-6Al-4V alloys were produced with a powder metallurgical process, space holder technique, where magnesium powders were utilized in order to generate porosities in the range of 50 to 70 vol. %. In the productions of Ti-6Al-4V foams, first, the spherical Ti-6Al-4V powders with an average size of 55 μm were mixed...
