Summary expansion
Modelling is an important aspect of the design process for biomaterials and medical devices. By effectively modelling biomaterials and implants before their implantation, it is now possible to predict certain implant-tissue reactions, degradation and wear. Consequently computational modelling is becoming increasingly important in the design and manufacture of biomedical materials, allowing scientists to more accurately tailor their materials┬┐ properties for the in vivo environment. The book begins with an introduction to the field and the software and technologies. Part one provides readers with an introduction to the field. Part two covers generic modelling of cells and tissues whilst chapters in part three discuss modelling of biomaterials and interfaces. Part four reviews biomechanics and biotribology with chapters in part five discussing applications of modelling for joint replacements and tissue engineering
