  • Hybrid - International House & Zoom Webinar

IAS Visiting Fellow Dr Emrullah Hakan Kaleli delivers a seminar on their research, fully titled "Development of Reduced Graphene Oxide Coating for Engine Cylinder Liner by Electrophoretic Deposition Method and Evaluation of its Tribological Performances". Dr Kaleli is hosted by Dr Mahdi Mohammad-Pour (Wolfson School of MEME) - 

This is a Collaborative research between Yildiz Technical University/TURKEY and Wolfson school/Loughborough University, Loughborough, UK. This research aims to investigate the tribological performance of engine cylinder liner coating with reduced graphene oxide (rGO) using the electrophoretic deposition (EPD) process to reduce the friction and wear and improve the lubrication in a Diesel engine.

The tribological impact of rGO coated engine cylinder liner will be compared with uncoated Diesel engine liner using EPD (Electrophoretic deposition) method for low friction, better lubricity and high wear-resistance. Its tribological performance will evaluated through a reciprocating tribometer then engine tests.

As a methodology, Turkish side will perform the coating process by using an EPD of rGO and U.K. side will carry out the surface analysis of coated cylinder liners with rGO to investigate if there is a reduction in friction, corrosion prevention and increase in service lifespan of the engine.

Arrivals from 11:45 am for a 12:00 noon start. For those joining in-person, lunch will be served from 1:00pm.

IAS seminars are typically recorded, minus any Q&A sessions at the end, again to encourage contributions. The recordings are then uploaded to our website on a Fellows bio page and/or Programme page, along with our IAS YouTube Channel. If you are not able to attend a seminar live, please do still register as we will email everyone who registered to let them know once the recordings are made available.
