Alumina ceramics are a leading biomaterial used for specialist medical applications such as bionic implants and tissue engineering and the only biomaterial commercially viable for use as bearings for orthopaedic hip replacements. In addition, because of its unique combination of extreme wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and low manufacturing cost, Alumina is the dominant wear-resistant ceramic used in the mining industry today. Alumina ceramics: biomedical and industrial applications examines the extraordinary material, Alumina, and its use in biomedicine and industry.

Chapters in part 1 discuss the fundamentals of Alumina Ceramics. Chapters in part 2 look at the various industrial applications whilst the final set of chapters examines a variety of medical applications.

This book is an invaluable and unique resource for researchers, clinical professionals, engineers, advanced level students wishing to expand their knowledge on this important material.

  • Provides a unique and thorough review of Alumina ceramics
  • Written by one of the world s leading experts in bioceramics and advanced industrial ceramics, especially alumina
  • Targeted to researchers in the materials, clinical, and dental fields
  • Enables the non-expert to be able to get an overview of the underlying alumina technology, the major challenges, the major successes, and future directions

Biografie (woord)

Andrew J Ruys is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and has served as Director of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Sydney since 2003. His Bachelors Degree (Honours 1 - 1987) was in Ceramic Engineering, and his Doctorate (1992) was also in Ceramic Engineering.

He has worked in bioceramics and advanced ceramics research for 30 years, and has been an active participant as researcher and educator, for this entire time. He also has extensive experience as an industrial consultant in the world-changing applications of advanced ceramics in wear-resistance linings in mineral processing, anti-corrosion-resistant vessels, high-temperature gas-seals, bioceramics, ballistic ceramics, and numerous other world-changing applications. The most important of the advanced ceramics, and the bioceramics, is alumina, the topic of this book. Professor Ruys has been involved with alumina for this entire 30 years.

Professor Ruys serves on three editorial boards, and is a reviewer for 24 scientific Journals. He has been teaching bioceramics, industrial ceramics, biomaterials, medical device technology, dental materials, chemistry, physics, and general engineering, a total of 27 different university units of study in the last 30 years.

His experience is unique, spanning as it does 3 decades in ceramics, bioceramics and industrial advanced ceramics, with an ongoing association with alumina for that entire time.
