  • Development of metallic matrix nanocomposites with enhanced mechanical properties at high temperatures and pressures by powder metallurgy and solidification process.
  • Multi-component nanostructured coatings on metallic alloys for wear, corrosive protection and high temperature resistance applications. Development of novel materials by mechanical alloying synthesis and thermal spray process.
  • Ultra-low thermal conductivity thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) from recycled fly-ash cenospheres.
  • Design and simulation of new materials with FactSage Software® based on Integrated Thermodynamic Databank System. The aim is focus on the development and interpretation of modified binary and ternary phase diagrams and the multi-phases involved related with their nano and microstructures.
  • Design and development of metallic coatings on-line by electrodeposition process for aerospace industry.
