Tribological materials (2010)

Published: 27 March 2009

A course exploring the influence of materials on tribological behavior.

After completion of this course you will be able to
- describe the influence of the microstructure of metals, ceramics and polymers on their mechanical and tribological properties
- make sound selections of materials for tribological components
- explain the benefits of coating or surface hardening of tribological components
- describe a few common methods in surface engineering
- describe the characteristics of the most common tribological coatings
