Masters and PhD Positions: Improved Barrier Performance of Polyolefin Coatings



This research focuses on Modelling, Characterization and design of polymeric nano-composite coatings for Improved Oxygen Barrier Performance using, Clay Nanoplatelets, Graphene etc. and adopting Multi-scale computational modelling approach and Atomistic/Molecular Dynamics Simulation

Masters and PhD Positions: Sustainable High-Performance Thermal Barrier Coatings – An Integrated Approach


This research focuses on engineering high-performance thermal barrier and protective coating systems through modelling its  deposition processes, study its manufacturing, characterize its microstructure, to feed information into multi-scale constitutive models, multi-scale modelling of its microstructure evolution and Fracture (in service) as well as experimental aspects (including In-situ SEM testing at temperature) of thin and thick film coatings to predict the system-level performance of such coating systems.

Improving the stretchability of as-deposited Ag coatings on poly-ethylene-terephthalate substrates

In this paper, we report that silver films evaporated on poly-ethylene-terephthalate (PET) substrates coated with an acrylic primer can be stretched beyond 70% without fracture. As-deposited films show a larger failure strain than annealed coatings. These observations are rationalized in light of a ductile fracture mechanism where debonding from the substrate coevolves with strain localization. The results of this study indicate that PET substrates coated with an acrylic primer layer may be suitable for stretchable electronics.

Springer Publication- Invitation for chapter in nanomechanical book

Dear Friends,

The reputed Springer publication from The Netherlands has given me the responsibility to edit a book titled “Nanomechanical Analysis of High-Performance Materials”.

WOM 2013 - First Announcement and Call for Papers - deadline 1 June 2012

The 19th International Conference on Wear of Materials with take place in Portland, Oregon, USA, 14-18 April 2013. Two typed of papers ar invited: 1) full-length research-qulity papers that involve materials aspects of wear, wear analysis and wear modeling, and 2)shorter, concise case studies. Both categories of papers will be peer reviewed for technical quality.

 All submissions should be made online at www.wearofmaterialsconference.com by 1 June 2012

Need softwares that can Model Multilayer Thin Film Coatings

Hi,

 I want to know what are some useful softwares in which I can simulate multilayer coatings in terms of thermal (CTE mismatch) stresses, and stresses due to contact type loading. I am looking for softwares that are easy to use by a person like me who has an experimental background, does not have exposure to using Abaqus, but can use softwares like Matlab.

 Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

Regards,

Sudhir

Call for Papers: 17th IC Wear of Materials (WOM)

Authors are invited to submit, via the conference website, a 200-250 word abstract by 1 June 2008. The 17th International Conference on Wear of Materials (www.wom-conference.elsevier.com) will take place in Las Vegas, April 19-22, 2009. The conference will focus on both the fundamental and applied aspects of wear and friction of materials at the macro-, micro- and nano-scale.
