Emerging Trend in the Pharmacotherapy of Osteoarthritis

Description: Article covers the emerging trends of pharmacologic therapies for osteoarthritis (OA) such as traditional OA drugs (acetaminophen, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), opioids, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), intra-articular injections of corticosteroids, and dietary supplements), which are effective in pain relief but not in reversing damage, and are frequently associated with adverse events.

Exceptional increase in the creep life of magnesium rare-earth alloys due to localized bond stiffening

Description: Article describes study in which researchers attribute the 600% increase in creep life in a prototypical Mg–rare earth (RE)–Zn alloy to multiple mechanisms caused by RE–Zn bonding—stabilization of a large volume fraction of strengthening precipitates on slip planes, increase in vacancy diffusion barrier, reduction in activated cross-slip, and enhancement of covalent character and bond strength around Zn solutes along the c-axis of Mg using atomic-scale characterization and first principles calculations.

Tribological Properties of (EN AW-AlCu4MgSi(A)) Aluminium Alloy Surface Layer After Ball Burnishing

Description: Article presents the tribological properties of (EN AW-AlCu4MgSi(A)) aluminium alloy surface layer after ball burnishing. EN AW-AlCu4MgSi(A) aluminium alloy is widely used as a structural material in aerospace and automotive applications. The authors have subjected it to grinding, polishing and ball burnishing. The authors have performed ball-on-disk tribological tests. We have also determined normalized 3D roughness parameters. High surface smoothness turns out to be obtainable. Favorable effect of the ball burnishing on the tribological properties of the alloy are seen. Results will be presented at the International Scientific Conference BALTTRIB, 2015.
