8-TRIBOLOGY AND ENERGY RESEARCH

Tribology is defined as the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion, and deals with all aspects of friction, lubrication and wear. Tribology is a key subject in mechanical engineering because nearly all machines depend on sliding surfaces for reliable operation. In fact surface wear and degradation is the key factor that limits the lifetime of most mechanical devices. The TRIBOLOGY AND ENERGY Group dealt with all aspects of Tribology and energy, but had five main research themes:

  • Friction and wear of automobile components.
  • Friction and wear of cutting tools.
  • Surface modification by texturing and surface coating.
  • Green lubricant for machining process and automobiles.
  • Surface modification by texturing and surface coating.
  •  Environmentally responsible cooling of machining processes
  • Surface characterization at micro and nano level

Group Members:

Dr . Arslan Ahmad (Assistant Professor/Group Head)

Mr. Ghulam Abbas Gohar (Lecturer)

Mr Hassan Raza (Lecturer)

Mr.Abubaker (Lecturer)

Mr.Yasir Raza (research Associate)

Ms. Saiqa Hafeez (Research Associate)

Ms. Sara batool (Research Associate)

9- DYNAMICS AND CONTROL

The area Dynamics and control deals with dynamic analysis of any mechanical and aerospace system; developing control system for a dynamics system. It also involves aerospace vehicle guidance, vehicle flight trajectories and orbits; vibration analysis of mechanical systems.

 Group Members:

Mr. Ali Manssor Pasha (Assistant Professor/Group Head)
