, 2016, For significant contributions in the field of Surface Science and Engineering through high temperature oxidation of metals, alloys, ceramics and composites including Thermal Barrier Coatings development for aerospace applications.
Landmark Research Contributions
First to use Acoustic Emission Technique in understanding the Oxidation behaviour of Metals and Alloys.
First to establish that the occurrence of Breakaway oxidation in large nos. of metals and alloys at high temperature is due to mechanical failure of the scale and not due to faster diffusion of reacting species as postulated by others.
Established the correlation of steam side oxide scale build up in high temperature tubing with its exhausted life fraction leading to assessment of its remnant life.
Developed the nano-structured thermal barrier coatings doped with rare earth oxides (LaCeO2) having enhanced life cycle under severe aggressive environment.
Evaluated the life cycle of thermal barrier Coatings based on TGO layer growth and change in the chemistry of bond coats.
