1. Tribology of materials for biomedical applications
2. Designing and analysis of the femoral neck for an artificial joint prosthesis
3. Biomechanics of optic nerve head
4. Metallic Biomaterials - A Review
5. Mechanical behavior of selective laser melting-produced metallic biomaterials
6. Influence of dry and near-dry machining in a biomaterial with dual negative tool geometry
Mechanical Behaviour of Biomaterials focuses on the interface between engineering and medicine, where new insights into engineering aspects will prove to be extremely useful in their relation to the biomedical sciences and their applications. The book's main objective focuses on the mechanical behavior of biomaterials, covering key aspects, such as mechanical properties, characterization and performance. Particular emphasis is given to fatigue, creep and wear, fracture, and stress and strain relationships in biomaterials. Chapters look at both experimental and theoretical results. Readers will find this to be an essential reference for academics, biomechanical researchers, medical doctors, biologists, chemists, physicists, mechanical, biomedical and materials engineers and industrial professionals.
