Effect of Martensite Content on The Sliding Behaviour of Boron-Ion-Implanted 304 Stainless Steel
We have investigated the effects of boron ion implantation on the wear behaviour of 304 stainless steel. The initial phase composition of the specimens was varied by using two different kinds of polishing technique. ...
Improvement of adhesion of TiN coatings on stainless steel substrates by high energy heavy ion irradiation
The performance of tribological coatings depends greatly on the adhesion of the coating to the substrate. Various techniques are known for surface modification. Ion irradiation is a technique which has been used to modify ...
Sliding Behaviour of Boron Ion-Implanted 304 Stainless Steel
We have studied the influence of boron ion implantation on the friction and wear behaviour of 304 stainless steel. We find an increase in microhardness following implantation. We also observe a reduction in wear and ...
A Physical Basis for Irradiation-Induced Modification of Thin-Film Stresses
A mechanism is proposed for the modification of stresses in thin films by irradiation. A tensile stress causes preferential alignment of interstitial loops such that the normal to the plane of the loop is parallel to the ...
Evaluation of oil samples from centrifugal separators
The cleanliness of lubricating oil in plant equipment is of prime concern since particulate contamination can lead to undesirable wear. It is important to be able to measure the size distribution of such particles in order ...
