Other Creative Activities

    • 3D Design
      • Blackglas™
        matrix composites reinforced with Nicalon and Nextel fibers were developed and characterized by Dr. Aswath’s group in collaboration with Northrop Grummann Aerospace. These composites were made by polymer pyrolysis of poly siloxane precursors and process chemistry, conditions and environment were optimized to develop net shaped composites with significant high temperature properties. These composites were used in applications such as afterburners in low observable (stealth) aircraft,

      • Electron Microscopy Laboratory
        Dr. Aswath has been one of the principal people responsible for the continued devel-opment of the electron microscopy laboratory facilities for solid state materials. Dr. Aswath was the PI (together with four other faculty in engineering) who developed the infrastructure to study solid state samples by electron microscopy. Dr. Aswath was primarily responsible for the procurement and set up of all the new facilities acquired as a consequence of the NSF funded equipment grant for electron microscopy. The facility is now part of the central characterization facility that is run independently by a facilities manager.

      • High performance MoS2 free grease
        High performance MoS2 free grease which has low friction and high load bearing capacity was developed in Dr. Aswath’s lab using proprietary organophosphate chemistry and long chain fluo-rocarbons. This patented technology has been commercialized by Platinum Research Organiza-tion. It finds application in various applications including CV joints, railroad applications, heavy duty applications etc.

      • In-Situ
        ceramic matrix composites based on barium aluminosilicate with b-Si3N4 reinforcements. This pro-ject done in collaboration with Loral Vought Missiles (Now Lockheed Martin) were extensively evaluated and the mechanism of synthesis of these composites were developed in Dr. Aswath’s laboratory. In addition, the mechanical properties of the composites were evaluated and chemis-try and process conditions optimized based to a large extent on fundamental research in Dr. Aswath’s lab. BAS-Si3N4 composites are used as radomes for missiles and rockets.

      • Mechanical Testing Laboratory
        Dr. Aswath was primarily responsible for acquiring and setting up facilities for high temperature creep and fatigue testing. This important area of research is of importance to local industries like Loral Vought, Lockheed Martin etc. In addition the availability of these facilities makes UTA a good competitor for local, state and federal grants.

      • Several next generation ashless and ashed anti-wear additives
        Several next generation ashless and ashed anti-wear additives have been developed in Dr. Aswath’s lab. These additives formed the basis of several patent disclosures which have now been commercialized for applications such as engine oil and transmission oils. These additives have the potential to improve fuel economy by reducing friction and also result in reduced depos-its on catalytic convertors resulting in lower green house gas emissions.

      • Tribology Laboratory
        Dr. Aswath has put together a tribology testing laboratory from scratch by acquiring and building several tribometers. This facility has the capacity to evaluate oils and greases for their lubricating properties. This facility has made it possible to develop collaborative research projects with companies in the lubrication field such as Platinum Research Organization, Chevron-Oronite,Lubrizol Corporation, Exxon-Mobil, Vanderbilt Chemicals among others.
