Research Area

        Due to limitation of natural resources, producing high strength and lightweight parts with environmentally friendly process is a great challenged in the materials and manufacturing industries. The major research work related is to develop the material with better mechanical properties without adding expensive alloying elements or applying secondary processes like heat treatment and to introduce a new manufacturing process guaranteeing better quality of the products employing with the conventional material.

        Friction is a highly non-linear phenomenon affected by a number of process parameters such as material property, characteristics of lubricant, deformation speed, temperature, surface condition, tool geometry, environmental factors, and their interactions. Although there have been a number of friction tests, it is still unclear whether these techniques are useful enough to differentiate the effect of these parameters on friction separately. So, it is proposed by Y.T. Im that a novel test method called tip test based on a combination of simple compression and backward extrusion at room temperature.
