Hardness in steels typically increases at the expense of toughness. Surface modification is an alternative method suggested by researchers to achieve wear resistance while maintaining a tough core. In this study, the surface of three steel specimens - one each of 0.2%C, 0.4%C and 1.1 Wt% C were surface modified with commercially pure Titanium, and the corresponding microstructures, hardness and wear rates were studied. Gas tungsten arc heat source was used for the surface modification. The microstructures were observed and the wear rates compared for unmodified and modified specimens. The modification resulted in increased hardness and decreased wear rates. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.
