dc.description.abstract Design of medical prostheses is typically based on the mechanical properties of the materials used. However, apart from non-loadbearing implants, medical prostheses in use are exposed to various forms of dynamic loading. Therefore, to eventually deliver qualified medical prostheses produced through additive manufacturing (AM), it is necessary to develop a data bank on both their static and dynamic properties. This is done here with reference to the fatigue properties of Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) of Ti6Al4V (ELI) parts, produced at the Centre for Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (CRPM) of the Central University of Technology. In recognition of the effect of microstructure on the mechanical properties of materials, post process heat treatment of Ti6Al4V (ELI) will also be done to produce prostheses with high fatigue strength. en_US
