By J. Paulo Davim

Tribology is the “science and expertise of interacting surfaces in relative movement” and encompasses the research of friction, put on and lubrication. by means of extension biotribology is generally outlined because the tribological phenomena taking place in both the human physique or in animals. accordingly, it's attainable to contemplate tribological approaches which could happen after implantation of a man-made machine within the human physique and the tribological approaches obviously happening in or at the tissues and organ of animals. Animals, together with people, own a large choice of sliding and frictional interfaces.

The authors target to supply a few advances in examine in biotribology. They conceal numerous features of biotribology corresponding to tribology of synovial joints and synthetic replacements; put on of screws and plates in bone fractures fix; put on of denture and restorative fabrics; friction of the outside and luxury of garments; put on of alternative middle valves; tribology of touch lenses and ocular tribology; biotribology at the microscale and nanoscale degrees, etc.

This ebook can be utilized as a examine textual content for ultimate undergraduate engineering classes (for instance, fabrics, biomedical, etc.) or for these learning the topic of biotribology on the postgraduate point. it might additionally function an invaluable reference for teachers, biomechanical researchers, biologists, chemists, physicists, biomedicals and fabrics engineers, and different pros in comparable engineering, drugs and biomedical industries.
