Prof Gillian Juleff's visit to Faculty on 7th September 2015

Sri Lanka had produced iron and steel two thousand years ago. These products were exported to Far East and it has now been established that the fearful Damascus sword was manufactured using our steel. Prof Gillian Juleff was the one who unearthed this important piece of history and brought it to the world attention by publishing in Nature magazine (Nature, vol. 379, no. 6560, pp. 60-63). Prof Juleff, now working for Exeter University of UK recently visited the Faculty of Engineering, University of Ruhuna as a part of research collaboration. The visit was organized by the Department of Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering.
