  • Oscillatory Tribology Performed With a Commercial Shear Rheometer
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Biotribology, Volume 14Author(s): Benjamin Winkeljann, Agnes B. Bussmann, Maria G. Bauer, Oliver Lieleg Here, we introduce a custom-made setup which allows for performing oscillatory friction measurements using a commercial shear rheometer as a technical platform. The presented measuring head can hold both artificial and biological materials as probing pins, and the sample holder is designed such that it enables measurements on a broad range of materials including technical materials such as steel and PTFE, kidney-shaped PDMS layers, and cylindrical cartilage tissue samples. Control measurements performed with an established rotational tribology setup demonstrate that the friction coefficients obtained both in the presence and absence of macromolecular lubricants agree very well with those published in the literature. Finally, we show pilot experiments in which we probe friction at the lateral interface between two different materials. For this interfacial tribology geometry, we also quantify wear generation by means of optical profilometry.
  • The development of a small-scale wear test for CoCrMo specimens with human

  • Shoulder Simulator Wear Test of Five Contemporary Total Shoulder
           Prostheses With Three Axes of Rotation and Sliding Motion
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2018Source: Biotribology, Volume 13Author(s): Simon L. Smith, Emma Kennard, Thomas J. Joyce Shoulder joint replacement generally utilizes ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) as a bearing surface. Long term survival of such implants is recognized to be limited by wear of the UHMWPE. Commercially available JRI 42 mm diameter VAIOS Total shoulders were wear tested in diluted bovine serum for five million cycles in a unique Shoulder Wear Simulator. Five Total shoulders were subject to rotational and translational motion, and loading, to replicate the “Mug to Mouth” activity of daily living. A sixth Total shoulder was subject to loading only in a control station. Wear was measured gravimetrically and surface roughness was measured with a non-contacting profilometer. Mean wear rate of the UHMWPE components was 21.5 ± 5.4 mm3/million cycles. The humeral heads roughened, from 19 ± 3 nm Sa to 43 ± 13 nm Sa over the five million cycles of the test, while the UHMWPE glenoid components became smoother, from 959 ± 230 nm Sa to 77 ± 17 nm Sa. This is the first reported wear test of multiple samples of a commercially available Total shoulder in a dedicated shoulder simulator.
  • Normal Load Scaling of Friction in Gemini Hydrogels
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2018Source: Biotribology, Volume 13Author(s): Juan Manuel Urueña, Eric O. McGhee, Thomas E. Angelini, Duncan Dowson, W. Gregory Sawyer, Angela A. Pitenis Health and physiology are critically dependent on the ability of soft, permeable, and aqueous materials (e.g. cartilage, cells, and extracellular matrix) to provide lubrication over a wide range of speeds and contact stresses. Living cells and tissues present tremendous handling and experimental challenges for fundamental biotribology studies. Synthetic high water content hydrogels, designed to share similar mechanical and transport properties of biomaterials, can provide fundamental insights into the basic dissipative mechanisms associated with aqueous lubrication. Recent studies investigating the response of self-mated (Gemini) hydrogels to a wide range of sliding speeds under constant load conditions revealed transitions in friction behavior that may be associated with polymer relaxation time and contact time for a surface mesh during sliding (mesh size divided by the sliding speed). Here, the extent to which contact pressure and contact area affect hydrogel friction behavior was explored by changing the applied load over two orders of magnitude (0.1–20 mN) and the sliding speed over four orders of magnitude (10 μm/s–100 mm/s). Oscillating pin-on-disk microtribological experiments were performed in ultrapure water for Gemini polyacrylamide hydrogels (average mesh size ~7 nm). Friction coefficient decreased across all ranges of sliding speed with increasing applied load, consistent with predictions of contact area scaling non-linearly with applied load and pressure-independent surface shear stresses. The contact area for Gemini hydrogel interfaces under these conditions has been shown to follow Hertzian contact mechanics theory, and supports the scaling of friction coefficient in the speed-independent regime that follows μ ~ Fn−1/3.
  • In Situ Measurements of Contact Dynamics in Speed-dependent
           Hydrogel Friction
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2018Source: Biotribology, Volume 13Author(s): Eric O. McGhee, Angela A. Pitenis, Juan Manuel Urueña, Kyle D. Schulze, Alexander J. McGhee, Christopher S. O'Bryan, Tapomoy Bhattacharjee, Thomas E. Angelini, W. Gregory Sawyer The friction behavior of soft, aqueous, biotribological contacts depends on contact geometry, speed, and pressure. Previous efforts to measure the surface profile of soft sliding contacts have been stymied by the matching index of refraction of aqueous materials submerged in water. Here, hydrogel surface deformations were imaged using confocal microscopy to experimentally investigate the contact geometry as a function of sliding speed. In situ fluorescence confocal microscopy measurements of the contact deformation during unidirectional friction experiments revealed the existence of a front/back asymmetry that increased with increasing sliding speed. A polyacrylamide hydrogel disk (96.5% water) was polymerized with fluorescent dyes and used as a rotating countersample below a polished glass hemispherical pin (1 mm radius of curvature). All experiments were performed submerged in a dilute (0.7 wt%) suspension of 1 μm red fluorescent microspheres in ultrapure water. Imaging of the contact was performed using a confocal microscope in situ with unidirectional sliding at 0.1, 1, 10, and 100 mm/s. The friction coefficient increased monotonically with increasing speed from μ ~ 0.04 at 0.1 mm/s to μ ~ 0.20 at 100 mm/s. All imaging was performed relative to the stationary glass probe under steady-state conditions. The contact line measured by connecting the leading and exiting contact points was nearly perpendicular to the loading direction at 0.1 mm/s sliding speed, but distorted as sliding speed increased. Consistent with the theories of viscoelastic contributions to polymer friction, the tangent of the contact-line angle correlated with friction.
  • Wear Mechanisms Characterization Operating in Micro- and Nanoscale of the
           a-C:H Coating Implanted by Ag-Pt
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2018Source: Biotribology, Volume 13Author(s): M. Janusz, L. Major, M. Kot, M. Dyner, J.M. Lackner, B. Major Wear mechanisms operating at the nanoscale may directly influence mechanical and biological properties of the advanced protective coatings used in industry. In the present research, the biomechanical properties of the advanced a-C:H coatings reinforced by different metallic crystallites have been characterized. The optimal biomechanical properties were found for the a-C:H implanted by AgPt crystallites. This coating has been selected for the detailed wear mechanism description at the nanoscale by transmission electron microscopy. Five zonesof the coating deformation as a function of the distance from the centre of the maximum load during the wear process have been identified and described. Based on the bio-tribological properties, a-C:H coatings implanted by AgPt are the most promising for use in applications.Graphical abstractImage 1
  • Tribological Analysis of UHMWPE Tibial Implants in Unicompartmental Knee
           Replacements: From Retrieved to In Vitro Studies
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2018Source: Biotribology, Volume 13Author(s): M.M. Sava, B. Munteanu, E. Renault, Y. Berthier, A.M. Trunfio-Sfarghiu This study focuses on the identification of velocity accommodation mechanisms of UHMWPE tibial implants from unicompartmental knee replacements.A tribological analysis of two retrieved medial unicompartmental knee implants was performed. The first implant presented a high wear rate at 7 years follow-up with the velocity accommodation mechanisms characterized by the formation of a plasticized thin and smooth 3rd body layer which was drawn until small UHMWPE particles were detached. The second implant presented good performances at 11 years follow-up with a lower wear rate, with the velocity accommodation mechanisms characterized by the formation of a discontinuous 3rd body layer composed of small UHMWPE wear particles and biological molecules from synovial fluid.An important finding of the tribological analysis of the two retrieved UHMWPE tibial implants is that the 3rd body layer plays a key role in the wear rates, influencing the velocity accommodation mechanisms.An in vitro study of two identical UHMWPE tibial implants using two lubricating solutions, with different compositions and structures (a calf serum and a Gel-IN calf serum) was performed to explain the root causes of the major difference between the 3rd body layers formed in vivo.It was observed that the calf serum led to a high friction factor, as the molecules were unable to bind to the UHMWPE surface. However, the Gel-IN calf serum led to a lower friction factor, with the formation of a 3rd body layer on the UHMWPE surface due to protein and lipid adsorption.
