Research Interests

Graphene: Ultrathin Coatings for Novel Approach to Remarkable Resistance to Electrochemical Degradation of Metals (2011 – till date). Raman recently led a ground-breaking work, demonstrating that an ultra-thin graphene coating can remarkably improve corrosion resistance of metals and alloys. An ultra-thin (a couple of mono-atomic layers) coating of graphene has been shown to improve electrochemical corrosion resistance of copper in the highly corrosive sea water environment, by nearly two orders of magnitude.

Nanocrystalline Alloys for Remarkable Resistance to Environmental Degradation (2006 – till date): Raman proposed for the first time a concept that nanocrystalline structure can lead to materials with extraordinary resistance to environmental degradation. This hypothesis of Raman has now been validated though experimental as well as theoretical investigations in his group (an ARC Discovery project). This study has also demonstrated for the first time that it is possible to achieve similar or superior degree of stainlessness in nanocrystalline iron-chromium alloys at only 10% chromium, in comparison to 18-20% chromium required/present in conventional microcrystalline stainless steels.

Mitigation of Extraordinary Electrochemical Corrosion of Magnesium Alloys (2007 – till date): Magnesium alloys are among the lightest engineering materials (lighter than aluminium alloys). In spite of their highly attractive prospects, use of magnesium alloys is very limited, primarily due to their poor corrosion resistance. Though an effective corrosion resistance to magnesium alloys is a serious research challenge, it is also true that unless this is surmounted, exploiting magnesium resources and use of their alloys will continue to be grossly limited. Raman’s group has developed and tested a new class of coatings for magnesium alloys. The novel coating provides nearly three orders of magnitude superior resistance than any coating in this class whereas the coating process is very environmentally friendly. This coating has been jointly patented by Monash and Flinders Universities.

Novel Technique for Improved Design Data for Mitigation of Stress Corrosion Cracking (2002 – till date): Raman led a Monash team for an interdisciplinary research into successful development, validation and patenting of Circumferential Notch Tensile (CNT) testing: a new, simple and relatively inexpensive technique (c.f. 20% of the costs of the traditional techniques) for the determination of threshold stress intensity factor (KISCC). KISCC is the most important design data for components operating in corrosive environments. CNT technique received recognition for its novelty and huge practical application and is now used in several international research groups. Raman collaborates with US Naval Research Lab, Oak Ridge National Lab, Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and Welding Technology Institute.

Degradation of Weldments due to High Temperature Gases (1991- till date): This was the first-ever investigation on the role of microstructure in the degradation across the narrow zones of the weldments of iron-chromium alloys. This new contribution received excellent international recognition for the novel mechanistic interpretation of the interplay of the microstructure and degradation as well as the contribution of environment in the well-known accelerated deterioration in mechanical properties of weldements in industrial situations.
Raman has conducted research in metallurgical and materials engineering at the Dept of Atomic Energy (India), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Univ New South Wales and Monash Univ. At the two leading Materials Engineering departments of the Australian universities (UNSW and Monash), he developed skills and expertise in the mechanical aspects of materials failures.

Current projects

Advanced Steel Development for Rail and Sleepers.

Hybrid Construction using Seawater, Sea Sand and Fibre Reinforced Polymer.

Conventional concrete is made using fresh water and river sand. This project aims to develop a novel hybrid
construction system to fully utilise seawater and sea sand, plus industrial waste, together with fibre reinforced
polymer (FRP) and stainless steel (SS), for use in civil engineering infrastructure under a marine environment. To
date there has been little work to understand the degradation kinetics and mechanisms of FRP and SS in such
complicated corrosive environments. The anticipated outcome of the Project is highly enhanced competitiveness
of the Australian manufacturing industry through an environmentally-friendly construction approach.

Nanotechnology Enabled Electrochemical Energy Storage Materials from Indigenous Natural Graphite.

Graphene, a 2D honeycomb arrangement of Carbon atoms of one atom thickness, is the center of attraction in nano science and nanotechnology. Graphene based macroscopic electrodes produced from exfoliation of graphite and their reconstitution have much higher surface area and ionic mobility in electrochemical energy storage devices. Utilizing the state-of-the-art in nano materials processing, functionalization chemistry, characterization and computer simulations, the project aims to develop a technology package for reclaiming natural graphite fines mined in Southern Australia. Our partner organisation has a strong commitment indicated by a high cash to kind contribution, eagerness to collaborate and possibility of long-term alliances.

Durability of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) Strengthened Steel Structures against Environment-Assisted Degradation.

Large numbers of steel structures such as bridges, offshore platforms, large mining equipment’s and buildings are aging. Retrofitting such structures becomes more and more important in the 21st century. Using an advanced material, CFRP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer), to strengthen steel structures is very promising. This project investigates the durability of CFRP-steel system. It will make a breakthrough in understanding of the influence of environment conditions on the bond between CFRP and steel and the strengthening efficiency. It will not only provide reliable retrofitting of existing structures but also build safe, more economic and smarter steel construction.

Transforming Waste Directly in Cost-effective Green Manufacturing.

This ‘Green Manufacturing’ Research Hub will create a unique opportunity for completely different industries to come together, with a common goal of creating value from mixed plastic and glass waste in manufacturing. Starting with fundamental investigations of the transformation behaviour of waste materials under high temperature conditions, we will develop scalable solutions for our manufacturing partners towards reducing the consumption of primary resources while simultaneously diverting waste streams from landfill. Additionally, the potential of using such transformations to yield improved products such as wear-resistant grinding media and light-weight building materials will be established, thereby enhancing Australian manufacturing.

Life Extension of Equipment Suffering Environmentally-Assisted Cracking: An Innovative Approach to Mitigation by Engineering of Materials in Service.

Environmentally-assisted cracking (EAC) represents a serious threat to infrastructure exposed to caustic and chloride environments in process, marine, energy and chemical industries in Australia. Despite extensive research, there is no consensus mechanism for EAC. This project will investigate a fresh approach to life extension of in-service equipment suffering EAC, by developing and testing a mitigation measure reasonably independent of the EAC mechanisms. The task includes development of a consolidated strategy based on: accurate determination of the fundamental parameters for crack propagation, and in-situ thermomechnical treatment for local manipulation of material at and ahead of crack-tip, in order to retard/stop crack propagation.

Corrosion Resistance of Nanocrystalline Materials.

For their unique physico-mechanical properties and exciting industrial applications, nanostructured materials are the most widely investigated materials research topic. However, corrosion of nano materials has received very limited research attention, even though the materials will be required to demonstrate acceptable corrosion resistance in most potential applications. This project will investigate: (a) corrosion mechanism of nanostructured materials, and (b) application of nanocrystalline structure in an innovative approach to corrosion mitigation (based on hypotheses: it may be much easier to develop a protective film on nanocrystalline alloys). Validation of the hypothesis will have highly attractive economic/industrial implications.

Characterisation and Mitigation of Caustic Cracking: A Safety and Maintenance Concern in Alumina and Pulp-and-Paper Processing.

Cracking due to synergism of tensile stress and caustic solutions (i.e., caustic cracking) is a major maintenance and safety concern in alumina and pulp-and-paper industries where vessels and pipe-work often encounter aggressive caustics at elevated temperatures and pressures. Caustic cracking is very sensitive to solutions chemistry and alloy variables, both of which vary considerably across and within the two industries, contributing to the inconsistency of plant experience with the handbook cracking susceptibility data (generated through simplistic tests). This project will develop an effective mitigation based on improved damage model, taking into account the mechanistic understanding of the role of solution chemistry and temperature.

Equipment for Metastable Induced Electron Spectroscopy.

One of the major research strengths of Australia is surface science as it is important for both fundamental and industry related research. In many cases it is crucial to investigate the outermost layer of a material or mineral. Metastable Induced Electron Spectroscopy is an ideal technique as it is sensitive exclusively to the outermost layer of a broad range of samples. The information gained is not accessible by any other method. The proposed equipment will be the first of this type in Australia and will complement existing surface science facilities. The project will enhance Australia’s position in surface science internationally and a large number of projects will benefit from access to the equipment.
