My main research topic is developing life prediction models for machine elements considering the dominant failure mechanisms, tribological aspects, operation conditions, and material properties. In detail, I'm modeling fatigue and wear as two life-limiting factors for various mechanical structures.
Fields of interest: Fracture Mechanics, Fatigue, Tribology, Structural Integrity, Contact Mechanics, Steels
Modeling Techniques: Physic-based Analytical/Numerical solutions, Probabilistic Life Assessment
- Developing physic-based life prediction models considering the tribological aspects, failure & fracture mechanisms, and uncertainties & scatters induced by material properties
- Validation of the life prediction models by advanced measurement and experimental techniques: RCF/WEAR test rig, Eddy Current technique, X-ray computed tomography.
