BMC - 616 Tribology of Implants

Introduces the system aspects of tribology. Regardless of the tribological system, friction and wear are based on certain combinations of acting mechanisms, which depend on the structure of the system as well as on the introduction of tribological stresses. The major mechanisms of friction and wear under solid contact conditions will be highlighted and related to basic physical, mechanical and chemical properties of the surfaces.
