Babylon University’s Master’s Dissertation: On Stainless Steel’s Surface Improvement

College of Materials, Engineering, University of Babylon discussed a master dissertation on the surface improvement of stainless steels for biomedical applications by the postgraduate student, Mrs. Nada Talib Jaber.

The dissertation aimed at studying the behavior of surface-enhanced samples in a liquid that simulates the human body via using open circuit voltage and dynamic and periodic electrochemical polarization testing.

The dissertation emphasized that most medical devices are made of austenitic stainless steel and titanium alloys, which are characterized by good corrosion resistance, suitable mechanical properties and biocompatibility.

The dissertation highlighted that various surface improvements were made on the (SS L 316) alloy, and the effect of the type of surface improvement and its changes on the mechanical properties, surface properties, antibacterial activity, adhesion strength and corrosion resistance of the surface layer formed as a result of these improvements was studied and the optimal values ​​for those variables were determined.
