- Research on adhesion in surface engineering and tribology is a recent topic within the group.
- There is little understanding of tribology; consequently, it requires a systematic approach and a broad knowledge of Chemistry, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Metallurgy, and Solid Mechanics.
- He has edited several books and conference proceedings on machining and tribology of advanced materials.
- Conventional tribology has become well established in the past fifty years but the few handbooks that exist are dated.
- Our vision is to be the nationally recognized facility of choice for performing research and development in machining, inspection, and tribology of ceramics and other high performance materials.
