- Comprehensively reviews present research on the tribocorrosion of passive metals and coatings, with specific reference to the design of tribocorrosion test equipment, data evaluation and the optimisation of materials’ properties for tribocorrosion systems
- The chapters discuss tribocorrosion mechanisms under sliding, fretting, and erosion conditions before focussing on methods for measuring and preventing tribocorrosion
- Contains a comprehensive selection of tribocorrosion problems in engineering and medicine, such as the tribocorrosion of medical implants, and tribocorrosion issues in nuclear power plants, marine environments, automotive cooling circuits and elevated-temperature metal working
Using the combined action of wear and corrosion tribocorrosion causes the alteration or degradation of materials. It restricts the performance and lifetime of machines and devices with moving components, installations and controls manufacturing processes such as chemical–mechanical polishing. The impact of tribocorrosion is most on passive metals that attribute their corrosion reseistance to a thin protective oxide film. Most corrosion-resistant engineering alloys come under this category.
This book offers an introduction to the emerging field of tribocorrosion and an overview of the latest research. Part one studies the basic notions of corrosion and tribology, before presenting the latest results on the growth and structure of passive oxide films. Tribocorrosion mechanisms under fretting, sliding and erosion conditions, respectively, are then discussed. Part two provides an insight into measuring and preventing tribocorrosion. It includes chapters on electrochemical techniques, the design of tribocorrosion test equipment, data evaluation and the optimisation of materials’ properties for tribocorrosion systems. Part three presents a set of tribocorrosion problems in engineering and medicine. Three chapters address the tribocorrosion of medical implants including test methods and clinical implications. Other chapters study tribocorrosion issues in nuclear power plants, marine environments, automotive cooling circuits, elevated-temperature metal working and chemical–mechanical polishing.
With its notable editors and international team of expert contributors Tribocorrosion of passive metals and coatings is an excellent reference tool for engineers and researchers in industry and academia confronted with tribocorrosion problems.
