2012 - Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK)
2004 - Mayo D. Hersey Award, The American Society of Mechanical Engineers
His primary areas of study are Lubrication, Lubricant, Composite material, Tribology and Rubbing. His Lubrication research incorporates themes from Wetting, Work, Viscosity, Fluid bearing and Surface roughness. His Lubricant study incorporates themes from Traction and Shear stress.
His studies deal with areas such as Thin film and Reciprocating motion as well as Composite material. The study incorporates disciplines such as Motor oil, Viscosity index, Mineralogy, Chemical engineering and Electrohydrodynamics in addition to Tribology. His Rubbing research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Surface finish, Zinc and Metallurgy.
His main research concerns Composite material, Lubrication, Lubricant, Tribology and Rubbing. His Composite material study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Thin film, Metallurgy and Base oil. His work focuses on many connections between Metallurgy and other disciplines, such as Antiwear additive, that overlap with his field of interest in Zinc.
His Lubrication study also includes
His scientific interests lie mostly in Composite material, Lubricant, Lubrication, Friction modifier and Tribology. The various areas that Hugh Spikes examines in his Composite material study include Base oil and Zinc dithiophosphate. Hugh Spikes interconnects Viscosity, Nanotechnology and Asperity in the investigation of issues within Lubricant.
His Lubrication research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surface roughness, Wetting, Work and Engineering drawing. His Tribology research includes elements of Rheology, Stress and Reference electrode. His studies in Rubbing integrate themes in fields like Layer and Metallurgy.
His primary areas of investigation include Lubricant, Composite material, Lubrication, Tribology and Friction modifier. His Lubricant study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Traction and Viscosity, Shear rate. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Composite material, focusing on Zinc dithiophosphate and, on occasion, Metallurgy and Rubbing.
His work in Lubrication addresses issues such as Work, which are connected to fields such as Polymer, Boundary lubrication, Dominant wavelength and Interferometry. His work deals with themes such as Rheology, Nanotechnology and Plasticity, which intersect with Tribology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Monolayer and Chemical engineering.
