A comparative study of the mechanical behaviour of thermally oxidized commercially pure titanium and zirconium
The objective of this study is to compare the mechanical behaviour of thermally oxidised commercially pure titanium (CP-Ti) and commercially pure zirconium (CP-Zr). For this purpose, these two bio-metals were thermally ...
Surface finish effect on dry sliding wear behavior of thermally oxidized commercially pure zirconium
The aim of this work was to investigate the effect of surface polishing on the wear behavior of thermally oxidized commercial pure zirconium (CP-Zr) under dry sliding conditions. Surface ground CP-Zr with a roughness of ...
Tribocorrosive behaviour of low temperature plasma-nitrided PH stainless steel sliding against alumina under linear reciprocation with and without transverse oscillations
In this work, precipitation hardening (PH) stainless steel was plasma nitrided at low temperatures 400oC and 425oC for 15 h. The wear and corrosion-wear behaviour of the untreated and nitrided specimens were investigated ...
Effect of oxidation time on the tribological behavior of thermally oxidized commercially pure zirconium under dry sliding conditions
Thermal oxidation is an effective surface engineering technique to harden the surfaces of zirconium (Zr) and its alloys for improvement in friction and wear performance. In the present investigation, commercially pure ...
Tribocorrosion Response of Surface-Modified Ti in a 0.9% NaCl Solution
Titanium use is limited due to its poor tribological properties, and thermal oxidation (TO) and pack carburisation with limited oxygen diffusion (PCOD) are just two of the surface treatments that can be used to enhance the ...
