Special Session 13
SURFACE TREATMENTS OF ADVANCED MATERIALS (SS13)

Surface modifications techniques are currently used in order to tailor the surface of materials to obtain desired properties for several applications. Thus materials that possess excellent bulk properties can be used in the aggressive environmental where will be in service with appropriate surface. In the last years, several techniques have been developed such as physical vapor deposition, ion implantation, surface machining and electrochemical anoxidation, for example. This special session is intended to provide opportunities for exchanging ideas and discussing state-of-the-art theories, techniques and applications in the fields of surface treatments, through invited lectures, oral and poster presentations.

Topics will include (but are not limited to):

  • Degradation Mechanisms: Wear, Corrosion, Oxidation
  • Coatings and Substrate Treatments to Reduce Wear
  • Surface functionalization of biomaterials
  • Mechanical Vapor Deposition: Pulsed Electrode Surfacing
  • Physical Vapor Deposition: Ion Plating, Ion Sputtering, Ion Implantation, Ion Evaporation Chemical Vapor Deposition: Infiltration
  • Thermal Spray: Plasma, Flame, LPPS, HVOF
  • Gas Diffusion Processes: Carburizing, Nitriding, Carbon nitriding, Boriding, Siliconizing
  • Mechanical Surface Treatments
  • Advanced and Emerging Treatment Technologies
  • Characterization of surface properties
