Speaker & Affiliation: Dr.(Ms) Hena Das University of California, Berkeley Visiting Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Title: Computational materials design of functional oxides Date & Time: 01-05-2017 (Monday) ; 03:30 pm Venue: Lecture Theatre, Dept.of Materials Engineering
The Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in association with the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) of the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India, is organising the SERB School on Mechanical Testing at IISc, Bangalore from 22nd to 31st May 2017.
This school will feature lectures by experts on issues related to mechanical testing of materials over a range of length scales – from single to nanocrystals and glasses.
The lectures will have both pedagogical and research orientations. Each talk will focus on areas relevant to the expertise of the speaker. The presentations will allow for coverage of current areas of research, and they will allow sufficient time for discussion. Thus, the workshop will be suitable for researchers and faculty members who are keen on broadening/ deepening their research interests in mechanical behaviour of materials.
Engineering faculty from colleges all over the country, preferably working in the area of mechanical testing can participate. Few seats will be available to research students working in the area of mechanical properties of materials.
Number of participants will be restricted to 25.
Overview of stress, strain and elastic and plastic deformation
Overview of fracture, fatigue, creep and wear
Tensile and compression testing – Theory & lab
Torsion and bending testing – Theory & lab
Hardness and wear testing – Theory & lab
Fracture and fatigue testing – Theory & lab
Creep and impact testing – Theory & lab
Small scale testing – Theory & lab
High strain rate testing – Theory & lab
Data analysis, error analysis, data representation
Overview of hardware, software and hardware-software interface
Core faculty will be selected from top Indian academic institutions and expert scientists from research centers.
Course fee & Accommodation details:
The registration fee for the candidates will be nil. The accommodation will be provided to the participants only in the institute guest houses on the first come first served basis subject to availability.
The deadline for submission of your application is 5th May 2017
Please send a scan copy of the application along with the approval of the head of the department to firstname.lastname@example.org
Coordinators: Prof. Satyam Suwas, Prof. S. Karthikeyan, Prof. Praveen Kumar
