Functional Surfaces through Texture- Role of Processing

By Dr. T.S. Sudarshan

Abstract

Over the years, numerous techniques have been developed to create texture in materials. The advent of high resolution measurement technologies coupled with the ability to precisely tailor or monitor the geography of the texture has allowed for unique combinations to improve functionality for specific applications. Through this talk, various insights into developments by processing methods on a wide range of materials will be discussed and the ability to look at multifunctional capabilities that are now feasible on the same surface. This texture development coupled with 3d printing can open up a new era of developments on creating components and materials that provide for minimal waste, improved manufacturing and operational costs.
