Biocomposites are widely used in the medical industry to repair bone, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. This book provides a thorough review of the current situation, recent progress, and future trends in composites for biomedical applications. It concentrates on the research and applications of this increasingly popular family of materials.
The book begins with an introduction to the material, focusing on the properties, fabrication and design of composites. It then discusses particular applications and biocompatibility of biocomposites. The final group of chapters analyses the mechanical behavior and failure of biocomposites and their future potential.Multi/Card Deck Copy
