The biotribology and biotribocorrosion properties of implantable biomaterials are extremely important, especially for the situations where there is relative movement between the implanted biomaterials or between the implanted biomaterial and the natural tissue under physiological environment.

Recently, more and more innovative biomaterials, techniques (for example 3D printing) and surface modification approaches have been introduced, thus their potential as implantable biomaterials and furthermore the biotribology and biotribocorrosion properties are preferably to be investigated.

Moreover, to date, in-silico wear prediction models of artificial human implants plays a key role in the modelling of biotribological phenomena in human body, justifying the growing interest of the researchers toward this direction.

This research topic aims to collect manuscripts within but not limited to the following areas:

(1) Experimental method or characterization of biotribology and biotribocorrosion properties of implantable biomaterials
(2) New emerging biomaterials for implantable clinical applications
(3) New emerging techniques for implantable clinical applications
(4) In-silico (bio) tribological and (bio) tribocorrosion models of artificial implants
(5) Biomechanical modelling of human body for determining the artificial joints load conditions
(6) Surface modification for reduction of biotribology or biotribocorrosion of biomaterials
(7) Injected nanomaterials with enhanced lubrication property


Keywords: Biotribology, Biotribocorrosion, biomaterials, Surface modification, in-silico models, Biomechanical models
