题目：Sheet Metal Forming & Plasticity Modeling
报告人：Prof. Peidong Wu（McMaster University, Canada）
邀请人：李淑慧 教授（薄板结构制造研究所）、李大永 教授（机电设计与知识工程研究所）
Peidong Wu is Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, McMaster University, Canada. He got his B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Zhejiang University, China University of Mining and Technology, and Delft University of Technology, respectively. In 1994, he was awarded the Canada International Fellowship by NSERC. In 1997, he joined Alcan International Limited, Research & Development Centre, where he became a Technical Leader in 2001. Dr. Wu joined McMaster University in 2006.
Since 1982, Dr. Wu has been working in the field of the mechanics of engineering materials and composites, especially in the constitutive modeling of large deformation of polymeric materials and polycrystalline metals. During his PhD study at Delft, he developed a non-Gaussian full network model for rubber elasticity. At Alcan/Novelis, Dr. Wu's research focused on sheet metal forming, including formability, bendability and roping of aluminum sheets. At McMaster, Dr. Wu developed a finite strain Elastic-Viscoplastic Self-Consistent (EVPSC) model for polycrystalline materials, and a new Twinning and De-Twinning (TDT) model for HCP materials. In 2009, he was awarded the International Journal of Plasticity Medal for excellent contributions to the field of plasticity, especially to the areas of constitutive modeling and metal forming. In 2011, he received the NSERC Discovery Acceleration Supplement.
In this talk, Prof. Wu will give a lecture on several interesting mechanics theories related to forming processes of light-weight sheet metals in a more understandable way; tell stories behind developments of some plasticity theories or modeling work. He will also share treasurable experiences on how to pursuit research work with graduate students attending the meeting.
