Proceedings Papers

Proc. ASME. IJTC2007, ASME/STLE 2007 International Joint Tribology Conference, Parts A and B, 31-33, October 22–24, 2007
Paper No: IJTC2007-44242
... 26 03 2009 In this work, we focus on the advantages of soft (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, UHMWPE) and hard (diamond like carbon, DLC) composite film over either soft or hard film alone for tribological performance. Thin hard tetrahedral amorphous carbon, ta-C (DLC...

Paper No: TRIB2004-64008
... 05 01 2009 In addition to confounding mass-based wear measurements in serum-lubricated hip simulator experiments, fluid absorption by the acetabular cups may simultaneously modify the wear resistance of the ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) from which they are composed...

Paper No: TRIB2004-64150
... 05 01 2009 Background: Multi-directional sliding motions between total knee replacement materials is a suspected primary wear mechanism of ultra-high molecular weight poly(ethylene) (UHMWPE). Method of Approach: A wear testing machine was developed to quantify damage from crossing...
