Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the tribological performance of tool surfaces in two steel working operations, namely wire drawing and hot rolling. In all forming operations dimensions and surface finish of the products are of utmost importance. LÄS MER
2. Transition Metal Nitrides : Alloy Design and Surface Transport Properties using Ab-initio and Classical Computational Methods
Sammanfattning : Enhanced toughness in brittle ceramic materials, such as transition metal nitrides (TMN), is achieved by optimizing the occupancy of shear-sensitive metallic electronic-states. This is the major result of my theoretical research, aimed to solve an inherent long-standing problem for hard ceramic protective coatings: brittleness. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : The subject of the present thesis is theoretical first principles electronic structure calculations on designer hard materials such as the transition metal carbides and oxides. The theoretical investigations have been made in close collaboration with experimental research and have addressed both bulk electronic properties and surface electronic properties of the materials.

Sammanfattning : The importance of hard materials for society is illustrated by the fact that entire historical time periods have been named after the predominant hard material used at that time. In the latest century, the introduction of the hard material cemented tungsten carbide with cobalt (WC-Co) has contributed to the economic growth we have seen and this material is crucial for the manufacturing industry of today.
