The course content is designed to have systematic and comprehensive understanding on various aspects related with surface engineering of metallic components for enhanced tribological life. It is proposed to include fundamental mechanisms of wear such as adhesive, abrasive, erosive, cavitation, corrosion etc., governing laws, materials properties importance for improved wear resistance under different wear conditions, materials increased tribological life, processes for engineering surfaces of three board categories a) regulating the micro-structure without changing chemical composition b) modification of chemical composition of near surface layers and c) developing of films, coating, and cladding on the. Methods of characterization needed for evaluating the metallurgical and mechanical and tribological properties and performance of engineered surfaces shall also be presented. Presentations will be supported with case studies for effective communication of concepts and procedures. Case studies will be taken up regarding surface engineering of various metal systems like ferrous and non-ferrous metals using different approaches discussed.
