In the most recent three decades, many embed materials have been made of metals, compounds, earthenware production, polymers, and so forth. Most metals and earthenware production are a lot stiffer than bone tissue which can bring about mechanical bungle between the embed and the nearby bone tissue. Notwithstanding other biocompatibility issues, metals are excessively firm while pottery is excessively fragile and polymers are excessively adaptable and feeble to meet the mechanical quality. Thus, composites of polymers and inorganic materials may offer the ideal properties for embed materials. Polymers are well known because of their low thickness, great mechanical quality, and simple formability. At the point, when the composite is utilized as embed material, its development causes scraped spot at the joint. Henceforth, a study on scraped spot wear of composites is fundamental before utilizing it as embed material. In this work, two-body grating test has been completed on HAp-HDPE and HAp-UHMWPE bio-composites to ponder the impact of different test parameters on scraped spot wear. Fluffy derivation framework (FIS) and Artificial neural systems (ANNs) are utilized to foresee the wear qualities of composites. It has been seen that HAp-HDPE composite gives palatable outcomes contrasted with HAp-UHMWPE composite as far as grating wear test. The analysis results recommend that HAp-HDPE bio-composite has the potential for use as an elective material for burden-bearing orthopedic applications.
