    1st ICAMDM2012

2013 the 2nd International Conference on Advanced Materials Design and Mechanics (ICAMDM2013)

May 17-18, 2013 Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia

Keynote Speaker

1. Prof. Hitonobu Koike (Dr. Eng.)
Organization: Yosinori Industry, Ltd
Keynote Speech Title: Improvement of the mechanical properties of SAE 52100 bearing steel by repeated quenching

Dr. Hitonobu Koike was born in Japan. After graduation on 1996 at Fukuoka University (physical chemistry engineering), he pursued his mechanical engineer career in an automobiles industry. After working of heat treatment of bearing steel as technical stuff in the lab of Prof. K. Kida, he obtained his Ph.D. degrees at Kyushu University (Department of Mechanical Engineering). His main research topics in Ph.D. are contact problem of ceramics balls in PEEK bearings, and humanoid robot joint system (aluminium alloy plate cam, titanium crank shaft and PEEK-PTFE composite bush). In the plastic bearing research, bearing raceway fatigue evaluation by FT-IR was reported. In the robot joint research he investigated the transmission error in the humanoid leg system and also the tribological behavior, which was received the "Best Paper Award" from International Conference on Mechatronics and Applied Mechanics in 2011. Recent his interest is light weight, high power and high accuracy system.

2.Prof.Katsuyuki Kida (Dr. Eng.)
Organization: University of Toyama
Keynote Speech Title: Fracture observation and SHPM (Scanning Hall Probe Microscopy)

Prof. Katsuyuki Kida was born in 1968 in Osaka, where from 1988 he studied mechanical engineering at Osaka University. Apart from course work, he studied rolling contact fatigue (RCF) occurring in TiC and TiN coated steels using both X-ray diffraction and scanning acoustic microscopy. After graduation he pursued his academic career and completed a Ph.D. course in engineering mechanics in 2000, investigating RCF problems of all-Si3N4 bearings. By observing cracking and flaking failure under RCF, he succeeded in explaining the material`s features from the viewpoint of fracture mechanics. From 2000 he focused his work on investigating the contact problems of elements used in automobiles such as toroidal CVT and high-pressure pump of new type diesel engines. He has also continued the fundamental research on contact problems, which received The Best Paper Prize from Fatigue & Fracture of Engineering Materials & Structures journal in 2005. The awarded paper reported establishing a crack growth mechanism under contact pressure, a problem that had not been solved for over 70 years since S. Ways theory. Katsuyuki Kida`s work has been awarded nine more times since 2005.

At present, he is the leader of five projects supported by the Japanese Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization NEDO and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The laboratory is based in Kyushu University and the main topics are:
- plastic bearings,
- heat treatment of steels,
- joint system for humanoid robots,
- Diesel engines pressure valves and
- Scanning Hall Probe Microscopy.
