Abstract

In addition to composing safe elements, with regard to the long-term usage of biomaterials, the following factors are considered to be critical: the mechanical biocompatibilities such as the Young's modulus, the functionalities such as superelasticity and shape memory characteristics, and the mechanical properties including fatigue characteristics, fretting fatigue characteristics, fracture toughness, and wear characteristics. The Young's modulus and the functionalities are very important and have attracted considerable attention.
