Title:Structural and functional integration of foldable mechanical composite hinges
Abstract:Bistable or multistable composite structures have received increasing interest in aerospace engineering to reduce weight, complexity, and improve aerodynamic efficiency. In particular, we focus on a bistable composite tape-spring structure, which is a thin-walled, open slit composite tube, that is stable in its extended and coiled configurations. This inherent behaviour makes it ideal for the applications to foldable mechanical hinge designs: there are great opportunities in replacing the conventional hinge assemblies.

Title:Exploring Multiphase Flow Processes via Particle-resolving Simulations
Abstract:We present an overview of particle resolving Navier Stokes simulations for a variety of multiphase flow processes. These simulations are based on an Immersed Boundary approach, which accurately captures the flow around each particle and in each pore space. We will discuss several different applications, among them particle sedimentation, particle turbulence interaction and submerged granular collapse processes. One focus will be on the influence of cohesive forces in such flows, especially the formation and break-up of aggregates consisting of several individual particles.
Experience: Professor Meiburg's research interests lie in the general area of fluid dynamics and transport phenomena. His group primarily employs the tools of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), in particular highly resolved direct numerical simulations, in order to obtain insight into the physical mechanisms that govern the spatio-temporal evolution of a wide variety of geophysical, porous media and multiphase flow fields. Occasionally, his group extends their analyses to address issues of linear stability as well. Frequently, they collaborate closely with corresponding experimental investigations. Some current interests focus on gravity and turbidity currents, Hele-Shaw displacements, double-diffusive phenomena in particle laden flows, and internal bores.

Title:Recent Progresses of Atomically Thin 2D Heterostructures in Sensing Industry
Abstract:The emerging two-dimensional (2D) materials have led to the revolution across many felds in optics, electronics, optoelectronics, and sensors. Physical sensors such as photodetector and chemical sensors like gas and biological sensors play important roles in optical communications, imaging, environmental monitoring, remediation, as well as healthcare and medical industries. The implementation of 2D materials can signifcantly enhance the performances of such sensors due to their ultra-thin planar surface, large surfaceto-volume ratio, and unique physiochemical properties.
Experience: Prof. Shahid Hussain is currently working as a professor (Full) at School of Materials Science and Engineering, Jiangsu University, China. He completed his Ph.D. degree at Chongqing University, in 2015, after starting a Post-Doctoral research fellowship from 2015 to 2017.
