Ph.D. student|Auckland University of Technology, Auckland 2015 - 2018
Completed Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 3 years.
Introduced 60NiTi, an emerging super elastic material presently used in ball bearing applications, as a material having potential to be employed in load bearing applications where components slide over each other.
Defined conditions, in terms of lubrication and stress, where 60NiTi can be properly used in sliding applications.
Investigated the mechanisms and reasons causing the unexpected sliding wear behaviour of 60NiTi as compared to 440C steel.
