- describes friction-based surfacing techniques for surface modification to improve resistance to corrosion and wear and change surface chemistry
- emphasizes industrial applications
- describes existing and emerging techniques
In industrial conditions, surface conditions are highly challenging and surface modification can reduce maintenance and manufacturing costs resulting in improved component performance, reliability and lifetime. Friction based technologies are promising solid state processing technologies, particularly for light alloys, in the manufacturing of composite surface and functionally graded materials. Surface modification by solid state processing describes friction based surfacing techniques for surface modification to improve resistance to corrosion and wear, also changing surface chemistry. This title is divided into five chapters, and after an introduction the book covers friction surfacing; friction stir processing; surface reinforcements of light alloys; and characterization techniques based on eddy currents.
