Scholarcy highlights

  • Metal flow behavior within friction surfaced coating was studied using tungsten powder as a marker
  • The results show that the top and bottom layers within the coating exhibit distinct flow patterns
  • The transport of material takes an involute path, and the material transfer starts from the advancing side of the coating to the retreating side and terminates at the center
  • The recirculation of material occurs at the retreating side of the coating
