The “China-Japan Bilateral Workshop on Design & Strength of Materials” hosted by the Department of Process Equipment and Control Engineering of the School of Chemical Engineering & Technology was held from May 6th to 8th. The workshop aims to discuss the latest research results on the mechanical behavior and component failure of metal materials, and strengthen the exchanges and cooperation between researchers and students from both China and Japan. Professor Takamoto Itoh, Kei Ameyama, and Akira Ueno from the Faculty of Science and Engineering of Ritsumeikan University (Japan) attended the meeting.
At the beginning of the workshop, Professor Chen Xu welcomed the experts and introduced the history of Tianjin University and the research direction of the CARE (Computer Aided Reliability Engineering) Lab. Later, Professor Takamoto Itoh gave a detailed overlook of Ritsumeikan University and their research fields. Professor Kei Ameyama presented the deformation mechanism of harmonic structured materials and Professor Akira Ueno gave an exhaustive analysis of the fatigue crack propagation behavior of structural materials in complex environments. Thirteen Japanese graduate students and six graduate students from Tianjin University reported their research topics, progress and results.
