Scope Surface hardening techniques that improve corrosion, wear, and fatigue resistance of steel components are of significant technological importance. These techniques are useful to a wide range of applications such as gears, bearings, shafts, turbine applications, automotive components etc. and typically achieve improvement in component performance by locally modifying the microstructure and properties of steel surfaces. Historically, surface hardening techniques have often been applied in a reactive manner, being considered at the end of a product design cycle to gain incremental improvements in properties. With new understanding of surface hardening processes enabled by advanced characterization and modeling capabilities, we are able to co-develop steel compositions and surface hardening technologies to maximize the performance of failure critical components. This symposium focuses on new technologies, deeper understanding of microstructure and property evolution, and enhanced properties enabled by surface hardening techniques in steels. By combining the state-of-the-art understanding across a broad range of surface modifications, this symposium aims to enable the next generation of integrated alloy-microstructure-process-property design for high performance steels for demanding applications. The symposium topics include but are not limited to
• Thermochemical techniques (e.g. carburizing, nitriding, carbonitriding, boriding etc.)
• Deformation based (e.g. shot peening, low plasticity burnishing, deep rolling)
• Applied energy methods (e.g. induction hardening, laser hardening, flame hardening, electron beam hardening etc.)
• Layer addition methods (e.g. coatings, thermal spray etc.)
