Low modulus β Ti alloys are attractive for biomedical application. This work examines the mechanical properties of Ti-Cr-Sn-Zr system alloys, especially the effect of the varying alloy composition on the microstructure, the Young's modulus and the deformation mechanism.The Young's modulus of the alloy varies with the composition, which variation is caused mainly from the competition between the meta-stable β phase and β phase.The deformation modes of the Ti-Cr-Sn-Zr alloy, which are the mechanical twinning, the deformation by slip and the deformation-induced transformation, also change depending on the composition of the alloy. The minimum of the Young's modulusof the Ti-Cr-Sn-Zr alloy in this experiment was shown in the composition where the microstructure of the alloy changes from the martensitic structure to the meta-stable β structure.
