Effect of Wear on the Evolution of Contact Pressure at a Bimaterial Sliding Interface

The eigenfunction method pioneered by Galin (J Appl Math Mech 40: 981–986, 1976) is extended to provide a general solution to the transient evolution of contact pressure and wear of two sliding elastic half-planes, under the assumption that there is full contact and that the Archard–Reye wear law applies. The governing equations are first developed for sinusoidal profiles with exponential growth rates.

A review on low dimensional carbon desalination and gas separation membrane designs The widespread use of low dimensional carbon membrane for desalination and gas separation is limited by the difficulty to physically realise such membrane designs on a meaningful scale. This review aims to bring together results achieved in this field, hoping to inspire new designs or developments that could bridge this technical challenge. The focus of this paper is on sub-nanometer separation operations such as desalination or gas separation.

Fully-Funded PhD Position: Smart Materials, Bio-Functional/Inspired Materials, Meta-Materials, 3D and 4D Printing Technologies, and Biomedical Device Design

Fully-funded PhD positions are available to UK, EU and International students in the Department of Engineering at Nottingham Trent University with a starting date of 1 October 2020 or 5 January 2021 (application deadline: 14 February 2020 at 12 noon (GMT)).
