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.
