The research activities in the field of surface engineering have been greatly driven by the realization that the surface is usually the most important part of any engineering component. The scientific research featured deals with fundamental and applied concepts of surface engineering, in particular focusing on the interplay between applied physics, materials science and engineering, computational mechanics and mechanical engineering.
The book is devoted to fundamental and applied studies of four interconnected aspects: processing, microstructural features, functional performance as well as the design of an appropriate theoretical and predictive framework of protective surfaces.
This volume contains papers presented at the Seventh International Conference on Computational Methods and Experiments in Contact mechanics and Surface Treatment Effects which cover the following areas: Surface treatments; Surface problems in contact mechanics; Failure mechanisms; Coupled analysis and experiments; Thin coatings; Thick coatings; Contact mechanics; Material surfaces in contact; Applications and case studies.
