Abstract : The focus of the present study was on establishing principles to support multi-scale surface texturing of metallic components for use in military performance applications. In this regard, two different surface texturing/modification methods were considered: Surface Severe Plastic Deformation (S2PD) and Modulation-Assisted Texturing (MAT). For S2PD, the effects of processing parameters on the resulting subsurface deformation field in terms of both mechanics and microstructure (e.g., microstructure, texture) were quantified for a unit model process as well as for an aggregate-level, strain-induced surface modification configuration. For MAT, the effects of surface texture form (e.g., micro-scale topography) on surface integrity measures and tribological wear performance were quantified. The ensuing results are useful as a preliminary step toward realizing a hybrid model-based processing framework for designing multi-functional surfaces with significantly enhanced mission-specific performance capabilities.
