At Yilmaz laboratory of Precision Engineering Research Group, we are working on the development of functional surfaces for various engineering applications. Our main focus is on reduction of friction coefficient between two metallic surfaces by utilizing micro-textures. In addition, we are also working on the application of Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) and Laser Surface Texturing (LST) techniques on heat transfer enhancement by altering characteristics of the heated surface, such as changing the wettability, hydrophobicity, or hydrophilicity of the heated surface. Furthermore, we are also interested in utilization of LST technique to create surfaces with superhydrophobic, superoleophobic, and superhydrophilic properties for self-cleaning and anti-fouling applications. This work is aimed at water treatment systems in order to prevent and mitigate fouling in pipelines.
