Recent advancement of material science has revolutionized the application of surface coatings in almost every field of engineering. It is nevertheless to say that, surface coating or surface modification has shown a new path to materials engineers, mechanical engineers, tribologists, chemical & corrosion researchers, bio-medical engineers, bio-material scientists, aerospace researchers and many more. In many cases the material of main component is unable to sustain long life or protect itself from adverse operating environment. As example, bearing of gas turbine undergoes high temperature tribo-corrosion damage; artificial bio-implant material undergoes rigorous friction and wear within a typical corrosive environment in presence of synovial fluid; space ships or rockets are launched from marine (corrosive) environment and during passing through atmosphere, enormous heat generated in surface due to huge friction with air and there are many more examples. In different cases different material properties like, anti-friction and wear, anti-corrosive, thermal resistive, super hydrophobic etc. are required as per the operating conditions. If those bulk components are made of such materials, possessing those properties, the cost will be very high. In those cases, practical solution is surface coating, which serves as a protective barrier to the bulk material from the adverse environment. During last decade, with enormous efforts, researchers and scientists have developed suitable materials to overcome those unfavorable operating conditions. Not only that, they have used advanced deposition techniques to enhance the adhesion and surface texturing of the coatings. Thus all these developments are needed to be explored through a common broad platform to the scientists and researchers associated with it for their easy reference. The aim of this proposed book is to compile the recent research trends in surface coating materials, deposition techniques, properties of coated materials and their applications in various engineering as well as industrial field under a single cover.
The objective of this proposed book is to publish most of the advanced concurrent surface deposition techniques, their properties and probable fields of application under one cover. This book could be a quick guide for researchers and scientists working in this field. Selection of suitable material for any component, which will be working in a specified environment and operating condition, is the first challenge to any design engineer. In most cases, the working load and working environment impose a demand of dissimilar material properties and that creates a difficult situation for material selection. Surface coating can solve this difficulty with ease. As environment effects mostly on surface, thus a protective coating can be provided over the surface of the load bearing material. By virtue of new technologies in the surface deposition techniques, both the metal and non-metal can be used either as substrate or as coating materials. This proposed book aims to cover a wide range of surface deposition techniques and coating materials, which are listed in the list of covered topics. Thus this can be expected that this proposed book will be able to put an impact not only to the related industries, researchers and scientists but promising students at higher education also.
This book will be helpful for industrial and academic researchers working in related fields but not limited to material science, mechanical engineering, tribology, chemical & corrosion science, bio-medical engineering, bio-materials, aerospace research.
Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Functionally Engineered Materials
Alloy & Composites
Thin Film Application
Alloy & Composites as Tribo-Materials
Texturing of Tribological Surfaces
Quality Control and Assurance in Advanced Surface Engineering
Surface Finishing and Cleaning
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before January 29, 2020, a chapter proposal of 1,000 to 2,000 words clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors will be notified by February 12, 2020 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by March 13, 2020, and all interested authors must consult the guidelines for manuscript submissions at http://www.igi-global.com/publish/contributor-resources/before-you-write/ prior to submission.
