Surface engineering of materials

  title={Surface engineering of materials},
  author={Michael Herbert Jacobs},
Abstract The large field collectively known by the generic title of surface engineering is briefly reviewed. It is emphasized that the surface features of importance extend below the surface for nanometre dimensions in some processes to several millimetres in other cases depending upon the technologies and applications being considered. The paper then focuses on surface engineering by nitriding and carburizing of titanium and steel alloys. Salient features of plasma nitriding and plasma… CONTINUE READING
