chrome horn

A car's front bumper when used to nudge or hit the car in front of it, either in retaliation or (in stock car racing) to inform the second car's driver that the first intends to pass. Always be considerate when changing lanes in front of other cars, as aggressive drivers may feel inclined to use their chrome horns to signal their displeasure. Some really aggressive driving by Roberts; he's been putting that chrome horn to use today!

(1) The friction coefficient of chroming friction coefficient is considered, and the antifriction properties of chrome-plating layer have a strong influence on the surface chroming layer.
(2) Three layers, which corresponded to matrix, DL, and SL, were observed beneath the worn surface in the 20CrMnTi against the chroming T10.
(3) The mechanism of the outstanding wear resistance in the chroming friction pair is considered to be the formation of the SFIDL in the 20CrMnTi.
