Journal Club for October 2016: Roughness evolution of biomaterial surfaces

As an example, here we discuss implant-associated infection from the mechanics point of view on bacteria adhesion affected by the biomaterial surface roughness:

1.    Implant-associated infection, a leading cause of failure in many biomedical devices, is caused by adhesion of bacteria to the surface of biomaterials. Implant-associated infection is difficult to treat, for example, joint replacement infections may occur deep around the artificial implants.

Journal Club Theme of February 2014: Energy Challenges and Mechanics

Since James Watt, a Scottish inventor, improve the efficiency of steam engine, human civilization relies more and more on a steady supply of energy. The re-rise as an international superpower and the global energy crisis are challenging China and the world. We are at a transitional age. On the one hand, we see the technology advances in exploration and development of oil and gas, a depleting resource; and the growth in handling ageing and decommissioning. On the other hand, we see ideas and plans for new energy structure in the future.
