Module content
Lectures:
SURFACE ENGINEERING

The aim of the lecture is presentation for the students the basic technologies of surface engineering technologies, which improves the lifetime of the machinery parts and tools, as well as increases their commercial values. Also the philosophy of surface engineering, its general applications and requirements will be presented for the students. The lecture is dedicated to the students of material science, mechanical engineering, bioengineering and others interested in this area of engineering knowledge. To follow the course the basic knowledge of physics, chemistry, physical chemistry and material science is necessary. The course programme includes the following subjects: directions of surface engineering techniques development; surface thermal (flame hardening, induction hardening) and thermo chemical treatments (nitriding, boriding, carbonizing, chromising, aluminizing); thermal spraying techniques; glow-discharge techniques; PVD and CVD techniques; corrosion protection techniques; sol-gel technique; galvanotechnique methods; paints; tubes preizolation; laser and electron beam techniques; ions implantation; techniques of characterization of the coatings structure and properties.

Project classes:
SURFACE ENGINEERING

On the basis of the bibliographical studies (books and journals) each student will present report concerning the solution of particular surface engineering problem related to the subjects presented during the lectures

Laboratory classes:
SURFACE ENGINEERING

Wear resistant surface layers (practical experiments of carbonizing, nitriding, bronzing – analysis of microstructure, hardness and wear resistance); corrosion and heat resistant surface coatings (analysis of microstructure and properties); laser application in formation of surface layers and coatings; paintings and emails; galvanotechnique; spray techniques; plastic coatings; coatings produced by means of CVD and PVD techniques, methodology of structural and compositional analysis of surface layers and coatings (optical and scanning electron microscopy, AFM, EDS and WDS microanalysis, XPS, X-Ray spectroscopy), techniques of hardness, micro- and nanohardness, wear and erosive resistance measurements.
