Surface Wear: Analysis, Treatment, and Prevention
Annotation Describes the surface properties controlling the wear processes in different environments, and presents techniques for reducing specific type of wear through modification of surface properties. The author characterizes the energy, morphology, and composition of surfaces, then identifies the mechanisms of wear caused by adhesion, abrasion, erosion, corrosion, and heat. The main section of the book discusses the various surface protection technologies: strain hardening, thermally assisted diffusion processes, hardening by thermal treatment, thin film coatings, and thick film overlays. The final chapters address metal, plastic and ceramic composites that resist wear, and provide a wear diagnosis methodology. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR

Page 11 - Stresses of this kind are also called microstresses since they vary from one grain to another, or from one part of a grain to another part, on a microscopic scale.
Page 9 - The energy required to form such an unstable high-energy region is the stacking fault energy (SFE) and is defined as the energy required to produce a unit area of hep material four atom layers in thickness.
