Design and development of next generation textured cutting tools for improved tribological properties during machining

Surface texturing/structuring has witnessed a substantial progress over the past decades as it is seen as a viable option for surface engineering, resulting in significant improvements in load capacity, wear resistance and friction coefficient of tribo-mechanical parts, thereby contributing to the development of sustainable manufacturing and surface functionalisation of components.

Droplet Impacts with Functional Surfaces

Droplet interactions with functional surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes, from preventing virus laden droplets passing through face masks to reducing the build-up of ice on the surfaces of flying aircraft. Read more

Hydrodynamic Performance of Billfish Skin Surface Roughness: Towards Drag-Reducing Engineering Surfaces

Biological surfaces often exhibit roughness features across a wide range of scales, serving a multitude of functions from protective armour through to controlling heat and mass transfer rates at the surface of the organism. Read more

Micro-manufacturing of surface textures for enhanced electrosurgery

3 years full time 1st April 2021, 1st July 2021 or 1st October 2021. Electrosurgery is a medical procedure that uses an alternating and high frequency current (200 kHz-3.3 MHz) to either cut and/or coagulate tissues and achieve haemostasis. Read more

Advanced Ceramics Discovery, Processing and Modelling for Aerospace Propulsion - ENG 1500

Dr Tanvir Hussain at the University of Nottingham was awarded a five-year fellowship - funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) - to find new materials, modelling and processing techniques that will overhaul the design and manufacture of advanced ceramic materials for the next-generation of air and space travel- details.

Using nanoscale vibrations to reduce icing on surfaces

The undesired formation and accumulation of ice on surfaces (“icing”) is not merely annoying, as everyone who has defrosted their car can attest, but also potentially dangerous. Read more

Digital manufacturing of rationally designed ice-phobic and ice-shedding surfaces (ASKOUNISA_U22SCI)

Ice accretion is detrimental to a number of areas from airplanes to wind turbines and power cables. Currently, methods to remove ice are either energy-intensive or time consuming leading for example to huge delays in airplane traffic during heavy winter conditions. Read more

Sustainable development of cutting-edge porous sorbents for gas separation

Developing cost-effective and sustainable porous adsorbents aiming at separating impurities and main constituents from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector. Read more
