Recent exponential growth in surface modification/engineering and coating development methods and techniques, which are tailored toward novel functionality and enhanced performance for tribological and anticorrosion applications, is an indication of the huge role and the prospects of surfaces and coatings in technological advancement. Primarily driven by the associated economic value of attaining superior and multifunctional surfaces, components in demanding and ever-evolving applications in the aerospace, medical, energy, automotive, chemical, oil, and gas industries are protected and their durability is increased.
Friction, wear, and corrosion are among the most common causes of failure in many components. The need to maintain structural material integrity and assets reliability under harsh environments, and a renewed impetus toward the durability of engineered surfaces and new coating systems, requires the development of advanced surfaces and coatings and an understanding of their tribological and anticorrosive properties through experimental, theoretical, and modeling activities.
The scope of this Special Issue will serve as a forum for papers on the following concepts:
- Theoretical and experimental research, knowledge, and new ideas on the tribological and anti-corrosion behavior of various engineered surfaces (laser, plasma, anodizing, nitriding, carburizing, shot peening, chemically treated surfaces, etc.).
- Coatings produced by different processes, including, but not limited to, additive manufacturing processes, thermal spray, laser and plasma processing, CVD, PVD, plating, etc. Tribological and anti-corrosion of such coatings based on valid experimental and theoretical analysis.
- Smart and functional polymer coatings for tribological and corrosion applications deposited by different methods (sol-gel, electrostatic spray, dip, spin coatings, etc.).
- Engineered surfaces for improved tribological and anti-corrosion behavior in energy systems, including smart solid lubricant for surfaces in energy systems.
- Studies investigating the underlying mechanisms for the improved tribological and anti-corrosion performance of coatings and surfaces, as well as their degradation/failure mechanisms through friction, wear under static and dynamic loading conditions, and corrosion.
- Latest development, trends, and future outlook in advanced surfaces and coatings for emerging tribological and corrosion challenges.
- Modeling and simulation to predict surfaces and coatings’ tribological and corrosion properties, performance, durability, and reliability in service environments.
