Surface Effects and Contact Mechanics XI: Computational Methods and Experiments

About the eBook

Containing the papers from the eleventh biennial conference on the topic, first held in 1993, this book covers contact mechanics and surface effects and their interaction, so important in modern engineering. The life and performance of structural components is affected by surface conditions such as wear, corrosion and, high cycle fatigue. Surface treatments that address contact conditions can reduce costs by extending the life of components. Hence the importance of the conference discussions.The book's papers cover such matters as Experimental and measurement tests; Fracture fatigue and mechanics; Surface modification; Surface problems in contact mechanics; Thick and thin coatings; Heat transfers; Multiscale experiments and modelling; Computer simulation; Biocompatible materials; Vacuum technologies; Residual stress problems; Tribomechanics; Case studies.
