Review: Friction and Lubrication with High Water Content Crosslinked Hydrogels

As soft aqueous hydrogels have moved from new materials to the basis for real engineered devices in the last 20 years, their surface friction and lubrication are emerging as critical aspects of their

The Effects of Surface Mechanical Deformation and Bovine Serum Albumin on the Tribological Properties of Polyvinyl Alcohol Hydrogel as an Artificial Cartilage

The mechanical and tribological properties of polyvinyl alcohol hydrogel as an artificial cartilage were studied under water and bovine serum albumin-lubricated sliding conditions. The frictional

The water-locking and cross-linking effects of graphene oxide on the load-bearing capacity of poly(vinyl alcohol) hydrogel

The poor load-bearing capacity of the poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogel has limited its application in biomedical and orthopedic fields. In the present study, PVA/GO composite hydrogels were

Friction characteristics of a potential articular cartilage biomaterial

Study on wear reduction mechanisms of artificial cartilage by synergistic protein boundary film formation

Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogel is one of the anticipated materials for artificial cartilage. PVA hydrogel has high water content and a low elastic modulus similar to natural cartilage, but its

Friction and wear behavior of poly(vinyl alcohol)/poly(vinyl pyrrolidone) hydrogels for articular cartilage replacement.

A trend change was observed in both the friction and wear characteristics of PVA/PVP hydrogels at 125 N load, suggesting a transition in the lubricating mechanism at the pin-hydrogel interface at the critical 125 N Load.

The composite PHEMA/PCL hydrogels showed compression properties similar to those expressed by canine intervertebral discs in different spinal locations, and Creep behaviour is also dependent on the hydrogel composition.
