Surface Treatments Applications Biomedical biocompatible coatings on implants drug coatings for sustained release Mechamcal I Tribological friction and wear tool steels implants I Fatigue minimize surface defects add compressive stress I Hardness Corrosion I Protective coatings for harsh environments catalytic converters electrochemical cells Thermal modify thermal coefficient of expansion to minimize stresses for thermal cycling Electronic dielectric barriers electrical grounds Optical re ective coatings or antire ective coatings tinted glass solar cells Many many more Example Fatigue Crack initiation and propagation I Crack initiation at the sites of stress concentration microcracks scratches indents interior comers dislocation slip steps etc Quality of surface is important I Crack propagation gt Stage 1 initial slow propagation along l crystal planes with high resolved shear stress Involves just a few grains and has at fracture surface gt Stage ll faster propagation perpendicular to the applied stress Crack grows by repetitive blunting and sharpening process at crack tip Rough in fracture surface I Crack eventually reaches critical dimension and propagates very rapidly Factors that affect fatigue life I Magnitude of stress mean amplitude I Quality of the surface scratches sharp transitions and edges Solutions gt Polishing removes machining aws etc gt Introducing compressive stresses compensate for applied tensile stresses into thin surface layer by Shot Peening ring small shot into surface to be treated High tech solution ion implantation laser peening gt Case Hardening create C or N rich outer layer in steels by atomic diffusion from the surface Makes harder outer layer and also introduces compressive stresses gt Optimizing geometry avoid internal comers notches etc Factors that affect fatigue life environmental effects Thermal Fatigue Thermal cycling causes expansion and contraction hence thermal stress if component is restrained Solutions gt eliminate restraint by design gt use materials with low thermal expansion coef cients Corrosion fatigue Chemical reactions induce pits which act as stress raisers Corrosion also enhances crack propagation Solutions gt decrease corrosiveness of medium if possible gt add protective surface coating gt add residual compressive stresses Surface Hardening Thermochemical treatments to harden

diffusion to occur the temperature should be high enough to overcome energy barriers to atomic motion Atomic Vibrations 39 Heat causes atoms to vibrate 39 Vibration amplitude increases with temperature 39 Melting occurs when vibrations are sufficient to rupture bonds 39 Vibrational frequency 1013Hz 39 Average atomic electronic energy due to thermal excitation is of order kT with a
