Improved single- and multi-contact life-time testing of dental restorative materials using key characteristics of the human masticatory system and a force/position-controlled robotic dental wear simulator (2012)
Journal Article
Melhuish, C., Dogramadzi, S., Alemzadeh, K., Raabe, D., Dogramadzi, S., Raabe, D., …Burgess, S. (2012). Improved single- and multi-contact life-time testing of dental restorative materials using key characteristics of the human masticatory system and a force/position-controlled robotic dental wear simulator.
