Abstract: The paper presents review of selected biomaterials that were subject of tribological investigations at Tribology Center of Mechanical Engineering Faculty Kragujevac. Development, design and selection of biomaterials are primary determined by characteristics and nature of the tissue that is being replaced or supplemented. Modern material investigations at micro level loads enable insight into new aspects of material behaviour and offer possibilities for further improvement. Tribological investigations of biomaterials can contribute to their development by offering solutions for wear decrease and wear prediction. Short review is presented of tribological tests of four different biomaterials, namely Ti6Al4V alloy, stainless steel AISI 316LVM, ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA).
