Surface degradation analysis
Your need : you wish to analyze a surface degradation of your material
First of all, what is a surface of a material? The surface of a material is a vulnerable zone where many interactions with its environment take place. It conditions, by its specific characteristics, the global performances of materials. It can impact the reliability and the solidity of a product in case of failures (corrosion, wear, adhesion, friction…).
Indeed, the surface of any material can be confronted with numerous aggressions which emanate from the physicochemical constraints of the environment. Any material surface is thus likely to be degraded by various factors that it is important to identify.
Among the most common wear and tear, we can find the following
- rolling ;
- corrosion; and
- Adhesion ;
- abrasion (seizure);
- pollution or impurity
In addition, they may be due to the nature of the materials in contact and the operating conditions (pressure, temperature, lubrication, corrosive environment, etc.).
