Release time:May 8, 2021

Topic: Multi-scale/physics mechanics in functional material structures and advanced manufacturing

Speaker: Prof. Yi Min, College of Aerospace Engineering, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA)

Time: Saturday, May 8, 3:00 PM

Venue: C708, New Main Building


Both functional materials and advanced manufacturing have multi-physical field coupling properties such as force, electricity, magnetism, heat, and light, and their macroscopic properties are closely related to the multi-scale micro-structure. Mechanical modeling and calculations considering the properties of microstructures and multi-field coupling have become an important part of the design and development process of functional material and advanced manufacturing. The presenter will report the results of recent years' research on multi-scale/physics mechanics in functional materials and advanced manufacturing, including 1) force-magnetic coupled phase-field models of microstructure evolution and fracture in ferromagnetic materials; 2) multi-scale calculations of the temperature dependence of solid magnetic properties across electron/spin-atomic spin-continuum media; 3) phase-field modeling and multi-scale calculations of magneto-thermal/elastic thermal effects; 4) microstructure evolution and magnetic properties of ferromagnetic materials in selective laser melting additive manufacturing; and 5) multi-field coupled modeling and calculation of microstructure evolution in powder advanced manufacturing.

Biography of the Speaker:

Yi Min, a full Professor in College of Aerospace Engineering at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA), Nanjing, China. He has been funded by the 15th Thousand Youth Talents Program of China, and was the 2020 Elsevier Chinese Most Cited Researchers. His research interests are focused on the applied mechanics, extreme mechanics, multi-scale/physics mechanics and phase-field modelling in material structures and advanced manufacturing. He received his bachelor and PhD degrees both in engineering mechanics from Beihang University in 2010 and 2015, respectively. During his PhD study from 2013 to 2015, he worked as a visiting PhD student at the Group of Mechanics of Functional Materials, Technical University of Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt), Germany. From 2015 to 2019, he conducted his postdoctoral research and acted as a principal investigator (PI) at the same group in TU Darmstadt. He has published more than 60 papers (indexed by Web of Science) in high-quality international journals such as Nat Commun, Phys Rev Appl, Phys Rev B, npj Comput Mater, IJSS, Comput Mech, Acta Mater, Carbon, etc., which have been cited by more than 2,700 times with a h-index of 24.
