Tribology is the science and technology of interactingsurfaces in relative motion and encompasses the study offriction, wear and lubrication. By extension biotribology isusually defined as the tribological phenomena occurring in eitherthe human body or in animals. Therefore, it is possible to considertribological processes that may occur after implantation of anartificial device in the human body and the tribological processesnaturally occurring in or on the tissues and organ of animals.Animals, including humans, possess a wide variety of sliding andfrictional interfaces. The authors aim to provide some advances in research inbiotribology. They cover several aspects of biotribology such astribology of synovial joints and artificial replacements; wear ofscrews and plates in bone fractures repair; wear of denture andrestorative materials; friction of the skin and comfort ofclothing; wear of replacement heart valves; tribology of contactlenses and ocular tribology; biotribology on the microscale andnanoscale levels, etc. This book can be used as a research text for final undergraduateengineering courses (for example, materials, biomedical, etc.) orfor those studying the subject of biotribology at the postgraduatelevel. It can also serve as a useful reference for academics,biomechanical researchers, biologists, chemists, physicists,biomedicals and materials engineers, and other professionals inrelated engineering, medicine and biomedical industries.
