The adhesive wear behaviour of UHMWPE for knee replacement applications

Alrashidi, Meshari (2017) The adhesive wear behaviour of UHMWPE for knee replacement applications. [USQ Project]


In this project, the adhesive wear behaviour of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene will be tested under dry and wet contact conditions. The influence of the applied load, sliding distance, sliding velocity and contact conditions (wet/dry) will be considered in the project. Scanning electron microscopy and roughness profile devices will be used to examine the worn and counterface surfaces. Block on ring technique will be used in the tribological experiments. Different solutions in the interface will be considered in the tests. Comparison with the previous published work will be established.
