Abstract

Advances in the study of tribo-corrosion of materials in recent years have included the development of mechanistic maps, showing the transitions between the regimes as a function of the main process parameters. In such cases, maps have been constructed in both two and three dimensions. There are now a variety of modelling algorithms which may be used to map a range of performance indicators over a multi-parameter space. The interactions of tribo-corrosion in biological environments are becoming of increasing importance.
