Abstract

Mechanical properties of porous titanium compacts prepared by powder sintering were investigated. Porous Ti compacts were fabricated in the porosity range from 5.0 to 37.1 vol% by controlling sintering conditions and Ti powder sizes. Young's modulus and bending strength at the porosity of around 30 vol% were found to be similar to those of human cortical bone.
