This article provides an overview of surface-texturing techniques. It describes the texturing parameters, namely, shape, depth, and width of the textured pattern, its aspect ratio (depth over width), texture area density, and orientation. The article explains the effect of these parameters on tribological behavior of textured surfaces. It provides information on various modeling approaches for surface texture. The article also discusses the beneficial effect of surface texturing.
