Abstract:

Multi-physics simulation is a relatively new class of analysis in the field of engineering and science. Previously numerical modeling involved both fluid and structure which was undertaken using two separate codes, a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code for the fluid analysis and a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) code for the structural response. Recent advances in technology now enable the modeling of both fluid and structure within single code enabling a fully coupled analysis to be performed. This talk concentrates upon a number of applications concerned with the multi-physics modeling in real industrial problems involving new material challenges. These problems include a series of experimental data and simulations such as Concorde accident investigation, airbag certification, nuclear incident and other complex investigations. Experimental verification and validation of the numerical codes is essential in such practical applications to reduce the cost and enhance safety in design and manufacturing. The comparison between experiment and numerical analysis will be discussed in the above-mentioned applications.

Biography:

Manoj Gupta was the Former Head of Materials Division of the Mechanical Engineering Department and Director designate of Materials Science and Engineering Initiative at NUS, Singapore. He did his PhD from University of California, Irvine, USA (1992) and Postdoctoral Research at University of Alberta, Canada (1992). In August 2017 he was highlighted among Top 1% Scientist of the World Position by The Universal Scientific Education and Research Network. He has published over 455 peer reviewed journal papers and owns two US patents. He has also co-authored six books, published by John Wiley, Springer and MRF, USA

Abstract:

The significant rise in land, water and air pollution has led the researchers worldwide to look into materials and technologies that can sustain and utilize materials that are not toxic even under the conditions of indiscriminate disposal by rogue industries. Magnesium is a perfect solution for material researchers to address above issues. It is one of the most abundant elements in planet earth (both land and water bodies) that possess nutritional characteristics for wellbeing of both plants and animals. Being the lightest metallic element (1.74 g/cc) that can be used as structural material in both engineering and biomedical applications, it guarantees the reduction in CO2 emission in weight critical applications such as transportation sector (including automobile, aerospace, space and sports sectors). The aluminum based materials (density ~2.7 g/cc) are currently used extensively in transportation sector as lightweight materials and magnesium based materials can offer ~33% saving at component level. For biomedical sector, magnesium based materials offers a unique advantage of degrading within body thus assisting in avoiding revision surgery and minimizing patient trauma, doctor’s time and medical treatment cost. Accordingly, the aim of this presentation will be to provide a snapshot to the audience with a diverse background about the dynamic and multifunctional capabilities of magnesium based materials that are likely to make it a dominant metallic material in very near future.
