About this event

Speaker: Christian Young - EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacture in Advanced Metrology, University of Huddersfield

In nature there are several examples of functional surfaces which display desirable characteristics such as hydrophobicity or drag reduction. These surfaces rely on micro and nano scale structures to achieve these effects. The surface finish on conventionally machined parts is largely stochastic. Christian Young will explain how ultra-precision machining techniques (such as diamond turning and grinding) can be used to create deterministic micro and nano scale surface structures to replicate the characteristics seen in nature. By adapting specialised techniques used in conventional macro scale machining it may be possible to increase the efficiency of the ultra-precision machining processes.

A tour of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacture in Advanced Metrology facilities will precede the lecture.
