Surface Engineering

  • Dheerendra Kumar Dwivedi


This chapter provides introduction to the subject of surface engineering including need of surface modification, and classification of surface modification techniques. The scope of surface engineering covering design of surface modification, modification of surface properties using suitable technique, characterization of modified surfaces and implementation, standardization of the approach of surface modification for given application have been described. Further, role of surface properties, namely surface energy, surface composition, mechanical properties and surface roughness on friction and wear behavior has also been elaborated. Typical applications, advantages and limitations of the surface engineering.
