2013 the 3rd International Conference on Advanced Materials Design and Mechanics (ICAMDM2014)

May 23-24, 2014 Singapore

Keynote Speaker

1.Prof.Katsuyuki Kida (Dr. Eng.)
Organization: University of Toyama (Japan)
The title of keynote speach: Crack growth and Rolling Contact Fatigue

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 high-pressure pump of new type diesel engines. He has also continued the fundamental research on contact problems, which received The Best Paper Prize (FFEMS PRIZE) from Fatigue & Fracture of Engineering Materials & Structures journal in 2005 and AML-Scientist Award from Advanced Materials Letters journal in 2011. The awarded papers reported establishing a crack growth mechanism under contact pressure, a problem that had not been solved for over 70 years since S. Ways theory. Prof. Kida has been honored with prestigious 'IAAM Medal' of year 2013 for notable and outstanding research in the field of materials science & technology at 'Advanced Materials World Congress (AMWC 2013, ?e?me, Turkey, 16-19 September, 2013)' from International Association of Advanced Materials. His research interests now include the development of three dimensional scanning Hall-probe microscope technologies, fatigue phenomena in polymer bearing, crack growth mechanism under contact stresses and refinement of high-carbon steels.He holds and has held a number of prestigious leadership roles In academy-industry corroboration programs : refinement of steels, new joint system in humanoid robots and fatigue of polymer bearing in "Strategic Fundamental Technologies Strengthening Assistance Programs" (Ministry of Economics, Trade and Industry, Japan, 2009-2013); scanning Hall-probe microscopy in "Fundamental Studies on Technologies for Steel Materials with Enhanced Strength and Functions" (Consortium of the JRCM, Japan, 2008-2012); and ceramic bearing elements in the project supported by "Japanese Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization" (NEDO, Japan, 2007-2011).

2. Prof.Hirotaka Tanabe
Organization: University of Shiga Prefecture (Japan)
The title of keynote speach: Strengthening of Ceramic Coated Steel by Laser Quenching

Prof. Hirotaka Tanabe was born in 1969 in Japan. He has received Ph.D, M.Eng and B.Eng in Mechanical Engineering from Osaka University, Japan. He is an associate professor at the University of Shiga refecture, Japan. His main research area includes, Surface treatment, Rolling contact fatigue and Non- destructive testing and evaluation using magnetic flux density obtained by MI sensor. He has developed a new surface modification method by combination of ceramic coating and laser heat treatment using a high power diode laser equipped with a galvano scanner.

3.Prof.Tian-Hua Liu
Organization: National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan)
The title of keynote speach: Implementation of Adaptive Inverse Controller for a Micro-Hand Control System

He received Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology in July, 1989. He was a Visiting Scholar in the Wisconsin Electric Machines and Power Electronics Consortium (WEMPEC) at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, from September 1990 to August 1991, and in the Center of Power Electronics Systems (CPES) at Virginia Tech from July 1999 to January 2000. From August 1989 to January 1996, he was an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, where since February 1996, he has been a Professor. He served as department chair from 2007 to 2009, Dean of Honors College from 2009 to 2011, Dean of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from 2011 to now.
His research interests include motor controls, power electronics, and DSP-based control systems. He is an IET fellow.
