Recent news on the research group
Professor Yilmaz, along with other academics who are continuing their research in Japan, were invited for an idea exchange meeting with Professor Hisakazu Mihara (provost at Turkish-Japanese Science and Technology University (TJU)).
Professor Tanaka and Professor Yilmaz will be heading to Istanbul, Turkey to have preliminary meetings about academic & student exchange between Sophia University and Sabanci University. The meeting will take place on August 15th.
Precision Engineering Research Group consits two distinct laboratories (Tanaka & Yılmaz labs), which investigate mechanics and physics of material surface phenomena at different length scales ranging from the nano to macroscopic scales. Our research activities focus a wide range of topics including tribology (e.g. friction, wear, lubrication), manufacturing of CFRP materials (e.g. machining and molding/forming - PI Prof. Tanaka*) incorporated with CAD・CAE・CAM tools. The group conducts experiments and numerical simulations to translate scientific understanding into novel manufacturing methods & mathematical models.
- Investiation of micro texturing effect on reduction of friction/wear phenomena in Ammonia fueled Internal Combustion Engines
- Evaluation of utilizing Electrical Discharge Machining to create micro-scale textures on sliding surfaces
- Development of heat transfer models based on in-house built Deep Learning frameworks
- Optimization of CFRTP turning process
- Evaluation of machinability for CFRP milling process
- Analytical study of diamond tip burnishing process
- Development of in-process temperature measurement methodof burnishing by CVD tools
