Nitriding, nitrocarburising, oxidising, boronising, surface layer hardening, and remelting are among the most important processes for modifying the characteristics of the surface layers of components which are subject to high levels of wear. Although these processes have long been in use, they are subject to continual optimization and rationalization.
Heat Treatment Processes for the Reduction of Wear in Vehicle Components deals with the specific problems of selection, installation, and operation of heat treatment plant, and includes contributions on the theory of diffusion and on important safety factors. It can therefore be recommended to engineers and designers either working or researching in this important field of mechanical engineering.
