Fellows Conference Series: Santiago Corujeira - "Plasma surface engineering of austenitic stainless steel"

Santiago is a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Birmingham, Uk.


This learning activity covers the fundamentals of surface engineering with particular emphasis on thermochemical treatments; the difficulties involved with thermochemical treatments of stainless steels (corrosion resistance vs. wear resistance); the benefits offered by plasma technology and the recent development of new plasma treatments.


It is expected that after completing this learning activity the participant will understand:


- The rationale behind surface engineering treatments, with emphasis on thermochemical treatments.


- The difficulties involved with surface engineering of stainless steels


- The benefits offered by plasma treatments and their potential development.
