New PDF release: Aqueous Lubrication:Natural and Biomimetic Approaches: 3

By Nicholas D Spencer

Man lubricates more often than not with oil. Nature lubricates completely with water. natural water is a negative lubricant, however the addition of proteins, particularly glycoproteins, can regulate surfaces to cause them to way more lubricating at sluggish speeds. knowing how nature does this, and the actual constructions concerned, is not just very important for the certainty of ailments equivalent to osteoarthritis, but additionally crucial for the winning software of articulating implants, equivalent to hips and knees, in addition to the advance of clinical units similar to catheters and make contact with lenses. a number of vital functions of water-based lubrication are already in position within the own care and foodstuff industries, and extra commercial purposes of water-based lubrication may have an important optimistic influence at the environment.

This booklet is the 1st of its variety. It brings jointly the newest study in organic and biomimetic, water-based lubrication and is authored by way of the world's specialists within the field.
