  Abstract 

  This seminar will give a broad introduction on recent research work carried out in the Materials Research Centre, Kingston University on surface engineering, nano particle synthesis and their applications. The focus is on using computer simulation to predicate the formation of particles and the interaction between heat sources and particles. The computer simulation is used for process control and processing parameters optimization. It covers topics:

  1) Process control and parameters optimization for thermal spray.

  2) Synthesis of intermetallics and ceramic/metal composites using Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis (SHS) process.

  3) Process optimization for the synthesis of nano particles using flame spray pyrolysis (FSP).

  4) Toughening fibre reinforced plastic composites using nano rubber.

  Brief Introduction 

  Tao Zhang is Professor of Materials Engineering and Director of Materials Research Centre at Kingston University. After obtaining a PhD in 1988 from Tsinghua University in China, he moved to UK to continue his research in materials science and engineering. He worked in Brunel University, Birmingham University and London South Bank University before joining Kingston University in 2001. The research concerned near net shape forming, nanopowder synthesis, surface engineering and computer modelling. Computer simulations based on heat transfer, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics were used for the prediction of defects, mould flow, thermal stress analysis, thermal spray equipment design and process control, nano powder synthesis and processing optimization. Over the last 25 years, he has published over 100 papers in journal and conference proceedings. His research has been supported by EPSRC, EC FP6 and FP7, Carbon Trust and RAEng. Current on-going research is focused on nanomaterials for industry and energy applications and developing new processes to produce nano materials and coatings.
