Read e-book online Aqueous Lubrication:Natural and Biomimetic Approaches: 3 PDF

By Nicholas D Spencer

Man lubricates in general with oil. Nature lubricates solely with water. natural water is a terrible lubricant, however the addition of proteins, specifically glycoproteins, can adjust surfaces to lead them to way more lubricating at sluggish speeds. figuring out how nature does this, and the actual buildings concerned, is not just vital for the knowledge of illnesses similar to osteoarthritis, but additionally crucial for the profitable software of articulating implants, similar to hips and knees, in addition to the advance of scientific units akin to catheters and make contact with lenses. a bunch of significant purposes of water-based lubrication are already in position within the own care and nutrition industries, and extra commercial purposes of water-based lubrication can have an important confident influence at the environment.

This e-book is the 1st of its style. It brings jointly the newest study in organic and biomimetic, water-based lubrication and is authored through the world's specialists within the field.
