Summary:
During their service life, most biomaterials and medical implants are vulnerable to tribological damage. In addition, the environments in which they are placed are often corrosive. The combination of tribology, corrosion and the biological environment has been named "bio-tribocorrosion." Understanding this complex phenomenon is critical to improving the design and service life of medical implants.This book includes  Read more...

   schema:description "During their service life, most biomaterials and medical implants are vulnerable to tribological damage. In addition, the environments in which they are placed are often corrosive. The combination of tribology, corrosion and the biological environment has been named "bio-tribocorrosion." Understanding this complex phenomenon is critical to improving the design and service life of medical implants.This book includes 14 chapters and starts from the topography of bio-tribocorrosion, which marks the importance of the surface topological properties, in chapter one. Following this introduction, the first section discusses tribocorrosion mechanisms. Contributing authors focus on various scenarios, such as fatigue corrosion, fretting corrosion, wear corrosion, and abrasion corrosion and provide useful information on the prediction of wear in medical applications. Part two concentrates on biological effects on tribocorrosion processes, presenting theories on how proteins interact with material surfaces, and the evolution of surface changes due to bio-tribocorrosion in terms of biofilms and passive films. In the concluding third section, the authors have correlated clinical data with lab tests. They study bio-tribcorrosion in the oral environment, focus on joint replacement, present the coatings used for medical devices, and summarize the testing methods and protocols for bio-tribcorrosion."@en ;
