Ceramic Based Layer Structures for Biomechanical Applications

Published

Author(s)

Brian R. Lawn

Abstract

A survey of recent advances in the analysis of ceramic-based layer structures for biomechanical applications is presented. Data on model layer systems, facilitating development of explicit fracture mechanics relations for predicting critical loads to produce lifetime-threatening damage, form the basis of the work.
