Paper Title:
Effect of Artificial Cartilage Made up of Smart Material of Nanostructure on Dispersion in Poorly Conducting Macromolecular Components in Synovial Joints
  Abstract

Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) dispersion of macromolecular components in a biological bearing consisting of a poorly conducting synovial fluid both in the cavity of the bones and in the bounding porous cartilage of finite thickness is investigated using Taylor’s [4] dispersion model . It is shown that artificial joints involving smart materials of nanostructure discussed here work more efficiently than the natural joints.
