A critically important reference that points engineers toward optimal surface designs for tribological applications. Leading readers through an extensive compilation of surface modification reactions and processes for specific tribological results, this reference compiles detailed studies on various residual stresses, reaction processes and mechanisms, heat treatment methods, plasma-based techniques, and modeling, simulation, and design strategies for a solid understanding of surface structural changes that occur during various engineering procedures.
