On understanding the microstructure of SiC/SiC Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) after a material removal process (2018)
Journal Article
Gavalda Diaz, O., Axinte, D., Butler-Smith, P., & Novovic, D. (2019). On understanding the microstructure of SiC/SiC Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) after a material removal process. Materials Science and Engineering: A, 743, 1-11. doi:10.1016/j.msea.2018.11.037

The unique material nature (e.g. hard, brittle, heterogeneous and orthotropic) of SiC-based Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) highly affects the outcomes of machining process by inducing high thermo-mechanical loads during material removal. This can r... Read More

An integrated measurement method for complex micro-scale geometries (2016)
Conference Proceeding
Rabani, A., Senin, N., Helmli, F., Butler-Smith, P., & Leach, R. K. (2016). An integrated measurement method for complex micro-scale geometries

Micro-scale geometries are becoming commonplace in many high-precision manufacturing applications. Micro-drilling processes, for example, are being employed for producing holes in demanding applications involving fluid transfer, atomisers and micro-m... Read More
