Tribology is the “science and know-how of interacting surfaces in relative movement” and encompasses the research of friction, put on and lubrication. by means of extension biotribology is mostly outlined because the tribological phenomena taking place in both the human physique or in animals. for this reason, it's attainable to contemplate tribological methods which may ensue after implantation of a man-made gadget within the human physique and the tribological methods evidently taking place in or at the tissues and organ of animals. Animals, together with people, own a large choice of sliding and frictional interfaces.

The authors goal to supply a few advances in learn in biotribology. They disguise a number of facets of biotribology resembling 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 surface 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 e-book can be utilized as a learn 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 will possibly 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.
