About This PhD Project

Project Description

Composite coatings of pure metals is a common technique to improve the corrosion/oxidation and wear resistant surface properties of steels. However, the addition of ceramic particles (eg Al2O3 and TiO2) can increase the strain hardening behaviour of the coating and the overall hardness of the coating which can improve the wear resistance of surfaces. Various ceramic dispersions are being explored and incorporated into the nickel coating by electrophoresis. The research will investigate the use of different types of nanosized ceramic dispersions in Ni-based coatings and explore the effect of the particulate dispersions on the oxidation, corrosion and wear behavior of surfaces.
