Table of contents

Introduction - Engineering surfaces - a philosophy of manufacture (a proposal for good manufacturing practice), K.J. Stout. Part 1 Engineering: a route to standardization of 3D surface topography, K.J. Stout; surface integrity, functional performance and standards, B. Griffiths. Part 2 Applications of surface engineering: ballising - a technique for surface engineering, L. Blunt; finite element processing on the ballising process. Part 3 Functional surface modelling: a real topological characterization for a functional description of surfaces; 3D for a functional description of surfaces; 3D structure function applied to engineered surfaces; mathematical machining - a way to control the surface engineering cycle. Part 4 Surface processing: corrleation between surface texture parameters for abrasive cutting; limitations of currently-used filtering techniques in roughness/waviness/form analysis; the surface texture of plastic mouldings. Part 5 Surface wear: the protection of wear using surface parameters; estimation of linear value of surfaces based on their technical inheritance; the effect of rough surfaces on the performance of forming dies. Part 6 Instrumentation: functional evaluation of surfaces using non-contact surface profiling; accuracy of fast 3D topography measurements; comparison of various surface measurement techniques for polished femoral more
