Surface engineering as we discussed it refers to altering the surface of a material in order to:
- Alter it's appearance
- Alter it's dimensions
- Alter properties
- Reduce cost or add value
Real surfaces are complex. At magnification they are covered with:
- Dirt, dust, contaminants
Four major fields of Surface Engineering are:
- Surface Modification
- Surface Regeneration
- Surface coating
Surface cleaning can involve:
- Thermal treatments
- Co2 blasting
Surface modification involves:
- Diffusion treatments
- Selective hardening
- Corona treating
- Cryo treating
Surface regeneration requires things like:
- Mechanical finishing
Surface coatings involve:
- Powder Coats
- Plastic thermal sprays
voids or holes in the material that come to the surface
oftentimes a catastrophic defect
in powder metallurgy, it's a design in the feature
Particle impingement are processes like:
