Congratulations to assoc. prof. Amir Pakseresht and Dr. Omid Sharifahmadian for publishing their book in IGI Global IGI Global, an international publisher of progressive academic research.
This book contains 15 chapters which is principally concerned with the evaluation of the latest methods to improve the tribological behavior of materials for various applications. It is categorized into three main sections. The first part (Chapters 1–6) of the book is about the utilization of different thermal spray techniques to produce wear resistant coatings for various working conditions, such as high temperature and corrosive environments. The second part (Chapters 7–12) of the book is related to thin films and surface treatments which can reduce friction. In this section, plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition (PACVD), physical vapor deposition (PVD), electrodeposition and sol-gel methods that influence the tribological behavior of the materials have been described in detail. The last part (Chapters 13–15) of the book is focused mostly on the tribological properties of some advanced materials, such as two-dimensional lubricants, metallic glasses and surface-functionalized metal foils.
Several authors and editors contributed to this book from many countries such as Australia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Oman, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tunisia and United Kingdom.
