This study compared the mechanical properties of machine-milled pure titanium and cast titanium. The metals were cast or milled to the dimensions of a standard tensile bar pattern. Each group was treated under three different conditions; as-cast (or as-milled), standard heat, and extended heat. Tensile testing found no difference in the mechanical properties of as-cast and asmilled titanium. Heat treatment significantly increased the ultimate tensile strength and the yield strength of cast titanium but had no such effects on milled titanium. There was no significant difference between the two metals in the modulus of elasticity or the percentage of elongation under the three treatment conditions.
