Surface Engineering and Tribology

The main goal at Surface Engineering and Tribology Group is to steer the development of technology from the advances in science and engineering research carried out through collaborative and innovative mode of research in science and engineering. The group is comprised of interdisciplinary team of Engineers & Scientists from having Mechanical Engineering, Electronics Engineering and Material/Chemical Science background. The efforts are still in nascent stages; however, some of the developed technologies have transferred to industry.

Currently we have 8 Scientists, 1 DST INSPIRE Faculty Fellow, 3 SERB Post Doc, 24 PhD Scholars and 5 Technical Staffs

This group provides a platform in emerging frontiers of Nanoscience and Engineering for masters’ level students for carrying out research leading to PhD degree awarded by Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research (AcSIR), New Delhi.

Research Focus:

  • Graphene based Ultracapacitor
  • Foil and Gas bearings
  • Nano-lubricants & composite coatings
  • Micro / nano scale manufacturing systems
  • Large scale graphene oxide production
  • Synthesis of new molecules for sensors applications

These research activities are augmented by the state of art and well equipped experimental facilities, mostly designed and developed by CSIR-CMERI.

Testing Services

We undertake different technical services based on the needs of industry including testing. The used oil analysis is the technical services this group is catering for machine health monitoring.

Some R&D Projects:

  • Graphene Ultracapacitor Module to integrate with Electrical Power Supply for Hybrid Unmanned Ground Vehicle and other Pulse Applications (DRDO)
  • Synthesis of Single Layer Graphene & Polymer Nano-Composite (DST)
  • Design and Development of Multi Material Deposition (MMD) system (DST)
  • Design and Development of Hollow Crankshaft for Automobile(Indo-German project)
  • Low level Fluoride detection by cost effective chemosensor along with the mitigation of excess fluoride from different water resources by using naturally abundant indigeneous adsorption material
  • Design and development of electro hydrodynamic ink jet printing system(DST)
  • Developing manufacturing technology of graphene based polymer composite for mechanically stable and thermally durable automotive components(DST)
  • Developing an Optimum Thrust Pads, Bushes, and Shaft Design of a Multistage Submersible Water Pump for "SMART " Applications(DHI)
  • Graphene based Aqueous lubricants(CSIR-FTT)
