Wear is a process that occurs at the interfaces of interacting bodies. However, the gradual removal of this barrier by scientists has revealed a staggering array of different types and causes of wear. Since the very first wear tests, we have learned much more about wear and have made great strides in identifying wear mechanisms. Our understanding of wear has changed over the past few decades and this includes how we classify different wear mechanisms. Originally intended to classify wear mechanisms, terms such as abrasion, adhesion, and fatigue are inadequate today. Originally intended to categorize wear mechanisms, terms like abrasion, adhesion, and fatigue are today inadequate. Surface coatings and new materials wear differently. Understanding the mechanisms through which wear occurs, which frequently involve complex reactions and transitions, is essential to the effective utilization of these resources. Also, it will be much simpler for us to modify a material if we comprehend how, it resists wear and friction. It is now obvious that thin layers of material existing between interacting surfaces influence all known types of friction and wear. The reduction of friction and wear caused by the presence of fluid or lubricant at the point of contact has long been known. Wear and friction are typically substantially higher if such a film is merely created by bodies sliding in dry contact. In general, this film creation significantly lowers friction and wear, which makes it typically advantageous. Nonetheless, occasionally film formation occurs increases friction and wear. This textbook offers current knowledge on materials, wear mechanisms, and wear. The chapters cover the most recent ideas in classification of wear mechanisms, metal wear, polymer and ceramic wear, fretting wear, material wear, friction and ceramic wear, the third body concept in problems of wear and friction, and tribology of technical surfaces. The effects of surface chemistry in tribology, wear in boundary lubrication, the influence of lubricant chemistry on wear, the characterization and classification of particles and surfaces, as well as machine breakdowns and their avoidance, are also covered. This book advantage is its current understanding of the subject and the repeated mentions of technical principles.

A biomaterial is defined as a substance that has been engineered to take a form which, alone or as part of a complex system, is used to direct, by control of interactions with components of living systems, the course of any therapeutic or diagnostics procedures. They are used in close contact with biological systems, tissues and fluids and to serve a medical purpose, such as replacing a damaged organ or treating a disease. They play an integral role in medicine – restoring function and facilitating healing for people after injury or disease. Biomaterials may be natural or synthetic and are used in medical applications to support, enhance or replace damaged tissue or biological function. The first historical use of biomaterials dates to antiquity, when ancient Egyptians used sutures made from animal sinew. The modern field of biomaterials combine medicine, biology, physics, and chemistry and more recent influences from tissue engineering and materials science. The field has grown significantly over the past decade, largely due to discoveries in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and more, and in this book a new generation of biomaterials; particles, capsules, microbubbles and fibres are elucidated.Part of IOP Series in Global Health and Radiation Oncology.

Philosophies os Structural Safety and Reliability

by Issac Elishakoff
Book Description

Uncertainty is certain to be found in structural engineering, making it crucial to structure design. This book covers three competing philosophies behind structural safety and reliability: probabilistic analysis, fuzzy set-based treatments, and the convex approach.

Explaining the theory behind probabilistic analysis, fuzzy set-based treatments, and the convex approach in detail, alongside their implementation, use, and benefits, the book compares and contrasts these methods, enabling the reader to solve problems associated with uncertainty. These uncertainty issues can be seen in civil engineering structures, risk of earthquakes, impact of rough seas on ships, and turbulence affecting aerospace vehicles. Building on the authors’ many years of experience in the field, Philosophies of Structural Safety and Reliability is an essential guide to structural uncertainty. Topics covered in the book include properties of materials and their structural deterioration, safety factor and reliability, risk evaluation and loads, and their combinations.

This book will be of interest to students and professionals in the fields of aerospace, civil, mechanical, marine, and ocean engineering.
