Invstigation of High Temperature Tribological Behavior and Wear Mechanism of Stellite Alloys

Many industrial processes require materials that combine high strength at elevated temperatures with good corrosion and wear resistance. Superalloys are the only materials which can serve in such conditions, because of their outstanding high-temperature properties and excellent corrosion and wear resistance. However, due to limitation of testing facilities and difficulty of experimental operations, the data of these properties at elevated temperatures for these alloys are very limited, which has limited the application of these high temperature materials.

Globalink focus on industry seals the deal

Badlani, whose main academic interest lies in the field of robotics, had applied to four different projects to participate in the Mitacs Globalink program, and his second choice was the project he ended up working on.
