Functional Materials and Surfaces 6 credits

Course Contents

The course treats surface finishing as part of product development, and introduces industrial processes and the most important process parameters that define properties of functional surfaces. Sustainability aspects related to surface coating industry are discussed. Computer simulation in combination with experimental methods is introduced as a tool for improving quality of electrodeposits.

The course covers the following topics:
- Introduction to surface engineering of components including castings.
- Overview of surface treatment processes and factors affecting the process selection, on examples of electroplating, anodizing and electro-polishing.
- Analysis techniques for surface characterization (e.g. hardness and thickness measurements).
- Electroplating of metals, including fundamentals of electrochemistry and thermodynamics, and applications of FEA as a design tool for electroplating process.
- Sustainability aspects including cleaner production measures, environment protection directives and industrial safety aspects, test and qualification standards.
