A Computational and Experimental Investigation into Radial Injection for Suspension High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (SHVOF) Thermal Spray (2019)
Journal Article
Chadha, S., Chadha, S., Jefferson-Loveday, R., Venturi, F., & Hussain, T. (2019). A Computational and Experimental Investigation into Radial Injection for Suspension High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (SHVOF) Thermal Spray. Journal of Thermal Spray Technology, 28(6), 1126-1145. doi:10.1007/s11666-019-00888-8

Suspension high velocity oxy-fuel thermal spray typically utilizes axial injections of suspension into the combustion chamber. There are certain cases where the oxygen-sensitive nanoparticles benefit from a reduction in the time and temperature spent... Read More

Application of HVOF WC-Co-Cr coatings on the internal surface of small cylinders: Effect of internal diameter on the wear resistance (2019)
Journal Article
Pulsford, J., Venturi, F., Pala, Z., Kamnis, S., & Hussain, T. (2019). Application of HVOF WC-Co-Cr coatings on the internal surface of small cylinders: Effect of internal diameter on the wear resistance. Wear, 432-433, 1-10. doi:10.1016/j.wear.2019.202965

Due to the restrictions and mediocre performance of current methods of coating complex shaped parts in which line of sight processes currently struggle, the development of new coating methods is essential, with High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal s... Read More

A low-friction graphene nanoplatelets film from suspension high velocity oxy-fuel thermal spray (2019)
Journal Article
Venturi, F., Rance, G. A., Thomas, J., & Hussain, T. (2019). A low-friction graphene nanoplatelets film from suspension high velocity oxy-fuel thermal spray. AIP Advances, 9(2), 025216. https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5089021

The addition of graphene-based nanomaterials is known to improve the tribology properties of materials by lowering the coefficient of friction and reducing wear. The covering of small areas with thin graphene-based films is routinely carried out; how... Read More
