Surface engineering is a multidisciplinary action intended to identify the properties of the surfaces of engineering mechanism in order to improve their function and serviceability. Corrosion, wear and fatigue are among the most important mechanisms that lead to materials degradation, which, eventually, leads to failure of components. Thus there is a great potential for saving resources, provided that the fundamentals of material behavior, and thus its performance including degradation, are understood, in order to define on that basis strategies to improve the intrinsic properties of materials. Carbon steel is commonly used in the industry but vulnerable to wear and corrosion in the field. Replacing it with stainless or alloy steel increases the cost significantly, and a better alternative is to improve its surface properties and lifetime using plasma immersion ion implantation.Thermochemical Surface Engineering of Steels deals with the treatment of the surface and near-surface regions of steel to allow the surface to perform functions that are distinct from those functions demanded from the bulk of the material. It deals with geometrical, optical and chemical properties of stainless steel surfaces polished by various methods. It highlights on nitriding thermochemical surface treatment used in steels and alloys to improve wear and friction properties by surface microstructure modification, while maintaining adequate substrate properties. Surface characterization and corrosion resistance of 36Cr-Ni-Mo4 Steel Coated by WC-Co cermet electrode is explained. Effect of heat treatment parameters on the mechanical and microstructure properties of low-alloy steel and effects of gas metal arc welding techniques on the mechanical properties of duplex stainless steel are discussed as well. It is hoped that this book will be of valuable for engineers and practitioners as well as for researchers and will inspire young people to donate to future growth in the field.

This highly illustrated reference work covers the three principal types of surface technologies that best protect engineering devices and products: diffusion technologies, deposition technologies, and other less commonly acknowledged surface engineering (SE) techniques. Various applications are noted throughout the text and additionally whole chapters are devoted to specific SE applications across the automotive, gas turbine engine (GTE), metal machining, and biomedical implant sectors. Along with the benefits of SE, this volume also critically examines SE's limitations. Materials degradation pathways - those which can and those which cannot be mitigated by SE - are rigorously explained. Written from a scientific, materials engineering perspective, this concise text is supported by high-quality images and photo-micrographs which show how surfaces can be engineered to overcome the limits of conventionally produced materials, even in complex or hostile operating environments. This book is a useful resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as professional engineers.

This book offers a strong introduction to fundamental concepts on the basis of materials science. It conveys the central issue of materials science, distinguishing it from merely solid state physics and solid state chemistry, namely to develop models that provide the relation between the microstructure and the properties. The book is meant to be used in the beginning of a materials science and engineering study as well as throughout an entire undergraduate and even graduate study as a solid background against which specialized texts can be studied. Topics dealt with are "crystallography", "lattice defects", "microstructural analysis", "phase equilibria and transformations" and "mechanical strength". After the basic chapters the coverage of topics occurs to an extent surpassing what can be offered in a freshman's course. About the author Prof. Mittemeijer is one of the top scientists in materials science, whose perceptiveness and insight have led to important achievements. This book witnesses of his knowledge and panoramic overview and profound understanding of the field. He is a director of the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research in Stuttgart.

Today's shortages of resources make the search for wear and corrosion resistant materials one of the most important tasks of the next century. Since the surface of a material is the location where any interaction occurs, it is that there the hardest requirements on the material are imposed: to be wear resistant for tools and bearings; to be corrosion resistant for turbine blades and tubes in the petrochemical industry; to be antireflecting for solar cells; to be decorative for architectural panels and to combine several of these properties in other applications. Surface engineering is the general term that incorporates all the techniques by which a surface modification can be accomplished. These techniques include both coating and modification of the surface by ion implantation and laser beam melting. In recent years a continuously growing number of these techniques were developed to the extent that it became more and more difficult to maintain an overlook and to understand which of these highly differentiated techniques might be applied to resolve a given surface engineering problem. A similar development is also occuring for surface characterization techniques. This volume contains contributions from renowned scientists and engineers to the Eurocourse the aim of which was to inform about the various techniques and to give a comprehensive survey of the latest development on this subject.
