What is it about?
We studied the mechanical properties of Ti-Nb alloys by all-electron density functional theory (DFT) calculations.

Why is it important?
The mechanical properties of Ti-Nb alloys and the origin of its low Young's modulus (E) are explained based on the individual contribution of the different crystalline phases in the real material. The averaged E reproduces the experimental Ti-Nb Young's modulus w-shaped curve. E-surface reveals highly anisotropic E values for all Ti-Nb phases.
