At UniSA the projects will investigate the development of laser clad and 3D printed structures, or other potential application technologies, for Mining and Oil & Gas industries. The structures will be designed to resist abrasion, erosion, impact and corrosion (both chemical and microbially induced). The projects will include design, investigation of process parameters, advanced feedback mechanisms and control, measurement of properties as well as the study of interface behaviour by advanced electron microscopy. With our industry partners LaserBond and Santos we will give hands on training experience to an ECR and 4 PhD students.
