Surface Engineering for Corrosion and Wear Resistance
Surface Engineering for Corrosion and Wear Resistance provides practical information on surface treatments and how to optimize them for specific corrosion and wear applications. It reviews the basic principles of corrosion, friction, and wear, discussing the causes, effects, types, and testing methods. It describes more than 50 surface engineering techniques, including those that alter the metallurgy of the surface, those that change the surface chemistry, and those that add a layer or coating to the surface. A separate chapter compares and contrasts the various processes, providing dozens of tables and figures to illustrate differences in surface treatment thickness and hardness ranges, abrasion and corrosion resistance, processing times and temperatures, distortion tendencies, costs, and other factors. The final chapter presents design guidelines for matching surface treatments to specific applications and service conditions.
