Significance of Tribocorrosion in Biomedical Applications: Overview and Current Status

  title={Significance of Tribocorrosion in Biomedical Applications: Overview and Current Status},
  author={Mathew T. Mathew and P. Srinivasa Pai and Robin Pourzal and Andreas Fischer and Markus A. Wimmer},
Recently, “tribocorrosion,” a research area combining the science of tribology and corrosion, has drawn attention from scientists and engineers belonging to a wide spectrum of research domains. This is due to its practical impact on daily life and also the accompanying economical burdens. It encompasses numerous applications including the offshore, space, and biomedical industry, for instance, in the case of artificial joints (Total Hip Replacement, THR) in orthopedic surgery, where implant… CONTINUE READING
