Biography

The fabrication ,characterization and fracture of behaviour of new engineering materials which are used for high integrity applications such as the gas turbine engine, the wing of an aero plane and other high strength and temperature applications(Emerging Technology) is the main focus of Prof. Ovri’s research interest. The basic interest in these materials stem from their lightweight, high temperature strength retention, hardness and inertness under severely corrosive/aggressive environments.However, these materials often present difficulties in their fabrication to high density whilst maintaining suffiently high purity. This difficulty is thought to be associated with the covalent bonding and the lack of diffusive processes to provide material transport for densification. Prof.Ovri is interested in the fabrication of these materials. Especially the liquid phase pressureless sintering and the bonding of the naturally occurring elements (Nano technology).The fracture behavior of these materials at room and elevated temperatures are also of prime interest to Prof.Ovri.

Prof. Ovri is current working on the biaxial strength testing of these materials with a view of establishing a biaxial strength testing method for brittle materials. The current world attention on climatic condition has caught Prof.Ovri’s attention, but here we are looking at the effect of corrosion on the environment. We are interested in pipeline integrity management, taking into account all the statutory requirements to ensure pipelines do not fail while in service thereby avoiding oil spills with its devastating effects on the environment- pollution of air ,surface and underground water, destruction of floral and fauna, fire outbreak, and fatality. Prof.Ovri has also worked on cathodic protection and microbial corrosion of mild, medium, high carbon steels and aluminum at room temperatures.

Biography

The recent worldwide depletion of the easily mined high grade ores has resulted to mining companies looking for means of making the exploitation of low grade, high throughput deposits economically feasible. Heap leaching being a processing technology with low capital and operating costs is increasingly considered for the treatment of low grade metalliferous ores. Part of Mr. Ugwuegbu’s research interest is concerned with heap leach design and optimization, especially in the area of development and testing of unsaturated water flow and solute transport models for heap leaching, and laboratory/pilot plant tests required during the development of a heap leach mine.

One major problem facing the mineral industry is the issue of inefficient use of energy during comminution. Mr Ugwuegbu intends researching on the slurry rheology of iron ore minerals and its effect on wet grinding in order to reduce energy cost and increase throughput. Mr Ugwuegbu is also interested in the issue of mine-to-mill concept, a new area in mineral processing that is concerned with the optimization of blasting processes during mining in order to obtain fine ores that will be fed into the grinding mill thereby reducing the amount of energy required for milling.

Also of concern to Mr. Ugwuegbu is the clean ability/separatability of minerals, especially coal.

Biography

For many years now, corrosion has been a problem to our pipelines and other exposed engineering works. It has been quite expensive to carry out the control measures needed to abate this problem. This has led to an interest on a research on the effect of par magnetism on the corrosion abatement of mild steel, which Chioma Njoku is presently working on.
