Contact problems with friction, adhesion and wear in orthopaedic biomechanics. Part I – General developments

Jerzy Rojek, Józef Joachim Telega
The present paper is a continuation of the contribution by Rojek and Telega (1999). An alternative adhesion law is used to the study of the bone-implant interface. Various problems related to the bone-implant interface are discussed.
Keywords: bone-implant interface; contact; adhesion; friction
