Degradation Behavior of Microwave Derived High Entropy Alloy Coatings for Marine Applications

Tribo-corrosion is an issue of concern for marine and other fluid machinery. Durability and performance of marine components are severely impaired due to degradation from erosion and corrosion. Utilization of advanced structural materials can play a vital role in limiting such degradation. High entropy alloys (HEAs) are a relatively new class of advanced structural materials with exceptional properties. In this project we explore the protective capabilities of the HEA coatings subjected to extreme work conditions.
