My research belongs to the field of Tribology. The research is theoretically biased and deals with modelling and simulation of tribological contacts paying specific focus on the influence of surface roughness on film formation, friction, wear and leakage. For instance, I've been involved in work addressing the effect of roughness on friction and wear in hydraulic motors, on the load carrying capacity and power loss in hydrodynamically lubricated contact, on the leakage in seals etc. I've authored and co-authored papers which presenting developments in the field of homogenisation, new physical models in tribology, systematic computational tribology investigations, etc. I'm responsible for the modelling and simulation branch at the Division of Machine Elements, LTU.
