This book explores key issues which are important in the research and development of surface coatings. The book provides the updated information on friction and wear behavior of coatings used in different industrial applications. It covers the various coating deposition techniques, tribological response of nanocomposite coatings, Multilayer hardfacing and wear testing methods for coatings at nanoscale. Use of the nanostructures may alter the tribological, characterization and mechanical properties of the materials. Thermal spraying is a most widely used technique in industries for the deposition of coatings and their tribological properties need to be determined. This book also includes the recent trends in biotribology and the materials used in implants against the abrasive wear.
