PN-III-P2-2.1-PED-2016-1729 BIOHEA, contract 134 PED/2017, 2017 – 2018

The general objective of the project is the development of a new high entropy alloy from the TiZrNbTaFe system, for applications in the medical industry. The new alloy will have superior physico-chemical, structural and mechanical characteristics, compared to existing biomedical alloys. The synthesis methods used in the project are mechanical alloying / pressing / sintering and induction melting / casting. The resulting material will be subjected to heat treatment and rapid solidification processes to improve the structure..

The scientific and technological objectives of the project are:
1. Selection of the alloy composition;
2. Obtaining the TiZrNbTaFe alloy by mechanical alloying / sintering;
3. Obtaining the TiZrNbTaFe alloy by induction melting / casting;
4. Rapid solidification / heat treatment of the selected HEA;
5. Rapid solidification / heat treatment of the selected HEA.
