Biomedical Tribology

Nowadays, it is common to define tribology as the “science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion”. It includes a study that deals with the design, friction, wear and lubrication of interacting surfaces. Consequently, biomedical tribology is defined as the tribological phenomena occurring in the human body. This book provides research and review studies on biomedical tribology. Topics discussed include tribocorrosion and bio-tribocorrosion in the oral environment; friction of hip replacement bearing; development of the friction and wear of articular cartilage; and, axisymmetric contact stress analysis for artificial hip joint and the stability of hip endoprostheses.
