Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

A significant advance in the study of erosive wear in recent years has been the construction of erosion mechanism mop showing the transitions between the erosion-corrosion regimes as a function of the main process parameters. The various corrosion regimes, ranging from active to passive conditions, have been incorporated on the map. Hence, the map is more complex than that in dry oxidizing conditions when the predominant corrosion process is film growth. The object of this work has been to study the combined effects of increasing erodent velocity and applied potential on the erosion of PVD coatings, i.e., Ti2N and CrN in aqueous conditions. The substrate was mild steel, the particles alumina and the solution, a carbonate-bicarbonate buffer, Mechanisms of erosion-corrosion were identified on the basis of the results. The erosion mechanism maps generated from the results provided a means of differentiating between erosion-corrosion behaviour of the coating and the substrate. Significant shifts in the boundaries were identified for different coatings. The stages in the construction of such maps, in addition to the various approaches towards simplifying the nomenclature and the format, are described in this paper.
