MEE735 Surface Engineering and Surface Generation

[3–0, 3 cr.]

Most manufactured parts in industry require different quality parameters, and surface quality is one important aspect. This course will cover the main aspects of manufactured surface importance in engineering. This will include the engineering characterization and evaluation of generated surfaces. Different techniques and technologies that can be used to engineer surfaces; a focus will be on Coatings, and Machining. In practical applications, surfaces will be in contact with other bodies, and the tribology aspect can play a role of importance. Different types of surface wear will be explained, and how engineered surfaces can improve the surface quality and improve wear resistance.
