think you are those good afternoon
00:00:02
ladies and gentlemen yesterday on this
00:00:05
occasion of the industry they had to
00:00:07
backchannel I have the pleasure to
00:00:08
present to you the activities of the
00:00:10
mechanical engineering institute one
00:00:12
industry related projects in addition
00:00:15
I'll have to use the institute activity
00:00:17
in teaching our relation with industry
00:00:20
is very important and we've I've it
00:00:22
anonymously practically every faculty
00:00:25
member institute interact with industry
00:00:28
yeah projects and or internships
00:00:30
twisted the project so we are working
00:00:34
on our mainly funded by CPI the
00:00:37
framework programs and recently the the
00:00:41
four eyes on twenty twenty we are
00:00:45
working on like project screen the TV
00:00:47
on and that's that's that's very very
00:00:51
often in this you ground I'm showing to
00:00:55
you what the is for us mechanical
00:00:58
engineering it's making energy
00:01:00
manufacturing environmentally material
00:01:03
exploitation minimising ford
00:01:06
manufacturing elegantly multi scale
00:01:09
exploration monitoring evolution and
00:01:12
maximising energy our expertise are
00:01:16
shown in this in this my I'll start
00:01:19
with the the souls instructions. It's
00:01:22
myself the professor Curtin and
00:01:24
provides like maybe the fruits with
00:01:27
professor Avalon professor or a
00:01:29
proposal than their professors either.
00:01:32
And doctor far doctoral a long and
00:01:35
doctor sorting the energy with
00:01:37
professor house or proposal Marcel
00:01:40
Marceau taught me and doctors ought and
00:01:42
one of the control activity is with
00:01:45
professor one professor thought I try
00:01:47
character would rhinos this fall
00:01:50
proposal Johns and doctor Carter in
00:01:53
about things we have proposal BR for
00:01:56
the proposal for a no proposal is very
00:01:58
and professor park I should the line
00:02:01
here that the profits would be your
00:02:03
proposal for a no improvise respect are
00:02:06
with micro engineering but we are they
00:02:08
are also coffee littered with
00:02:10
mechanical engineer then we have to
00:02:12
design or production prosecuted to use
00:02:15
professorship one and professors like
00:02:17
are are involved in this activity okay
00:02:24
I'll start first with the research and
00:02:26
technology transfer. And the laboratory
00:02:30
professorship shipman research this in
00:02:32
this laboratory is focused on the
00:02:34
design an experimental investigation of
00:02:36
small scale to machinery for doesn't
00:02:39
alliance energy conversion here are for
00:02:44
with his projects one is on had about
00:02:47
gossip receipt relation for so for
00:02:50
solid oxide fuel cells. We have also as
00:02:54
the others always heat recovery on
00:02:57
combustion engines and "'cause" it's
00:03:00
also remote compressor technology for
00:03:02
compressed air energy storage. And
00:03:05
goddess Deering support to support that
00:03:08
Michael compressor here is you also the
00:03:09
companies involved in the in this
00:03:12
project the activity again in design
00:03:17
and production of propose what units is
00:03:20
this war is is a close to loop
00:03:24
lifecycle management or for sustainable
00:03:27
production and consumption of complex
00:03:29
products as you can see here it's a bit
00:03:32
low to the slide but it's clear. So we
00:03:35
have the close look life cycle
00:03:37
management the industry wants to call
00:03:39
it now yeah in dusty I for system
00:03:42
systems this is based on on the
00:03:45
internet of in the on the internet or
00:03:49
things oh which is about managing all
00:03:52
information of products and things. Now
00:03:55
the information is distributed over
00:03:57
systems the devices servers
00:04:00
applications then the information is
00:04:02
also distributed over organisations
00:04:05
companies individuals for this et
00:04:07
cetera then the products are unique
00:04:10
instances can see the and the question
00:04:12
is how to manage this identities and
00:04:15
what are the access right access rights
00:04:17
and so on. So it is really this is
00:04:19
actually this is the the theme of this
00:04:23
activity is to to to provide the the
00:04:28
information to to to apply to to the
00:04:30
interested parties of the of the it the
00:04:33
internet all things. Uh so this
00:04:37
activities right is is is is spread all
00:04:40
over their word he's very active with
00:04:43
the then many companies universities it
00:04:46
started with the SP six program which
00:04:49
was called problems and now I'll do
00:04:52
this activity some years ago a company
00:04:56
a startup company was created it's
00:04:57
called problem is innovation and I
00:04:59
think it's it's it's it's found some I
00:05:02
think in in in a way the open group
00:05:06
what you see here is is is an
00:05:09
organisation which provides standards
00:05:12
on this activity a here are the
00:05:17
companies sorry the companies and
00:05:20
universities involved in such such an
00:05:22
activity the activity on robotics I'm
00:05:27
sure you know it's it's the the that
00:05:30
one of professor bank in the laboratory
00:05:33
of professor by the focus on design
00:05:35
alteration fabrication and control of
00:05:38
unique robotic system the types of
00:05:44
boats are investigated soft parables oh
00:05:47
and origami problems in soft robots the
00:05:49
materials are it's a soft silicone
00:05:52
rubber polymers supplication guarded
00:05:55
white molding a pretty or printing and
00:05:57
the actuation is you know soft nomadic
00:06:00
action the not limiting object or or
00:06:03
actually doors in the origami robots we
00:06:07
have composite materials such as the
00:06:09
composers of material the fabrication
00:06:11
discard all by pressing pretty printing
00:06:13
multilayer integration. And the
00:06:16
actuation is is actually by smart
00:06:18
materials well under or under actuation
00:06:22
electromechanical motors here it's is
00:06:27
the guideline also or the pipeline of
00:06:29
the design office of design actually or
00:06:32
it's it's the design initially that the
00:06:35
idea of the layout and the fabrication
00:06:37
testing performance and then a
00:06:40
performance evaluation and complies
00:06:43
with the model. And then of course the
00:06:45
target of of of the application here we
00:06:49
see some you know some applications for
00:06:53
for for wearable object so they're
00:06:57
quite percentile they are light and of
00:06:59
course off. So we can see here classes
00:07:01
you know per se dukes what about
00:07:05
electronics et cetera oh the activity
00:07:09
in control I'll start with the the
00:07:11
other one of professor all in his
00:07:14
laboratory research is real time
00:07:16
optimisation the aim of process
00:07:19
optimisation is to improve performance
00:07:22
while enforcing the satisfaction of
00:07:25
operating environmental safety and
00:07:28
quality requirements it is working
00:07:32
quite a bit with the the following
00:07:34
companies a quite tech products Nestle
00:07:37
bella knows as you can see here on the
00:07:40
eucalyptus see the the the the theme of
00:07:45
the activity of a bit. And launch a
00:07:48
here is an example of his activity this
00:07:51
is about an to give them isolation of
00:07:54
polymerisation reactor the the
00:07:56
industrial futures are listed here it's
00:07:59
it's a huge reactors you can see and
00:08:03
the the initiate or efficiency can vary
00:08:05
considerably you have what we call here
00:08:08
recipes but are the parameters of the
00:08:10
problem the initial conditions the
00:08:14
fitting policies they initiate or the
00:08:17
use of train transfer agents and then
00:08:19
the use of it you live hear you have
00:08:21
several modelling difficulties and of
00:08:23
course the uncertainty that comes with
00:08:25
problems. So the challenge is to
00:08:27
implement near optimal operation for
00:08:31
there is this sore for various
00:08:32
parameters stylistically no I can put
00:08:36
the activity of of doctors carrying his
00:08:39
activity is a know systems new
00:08:42
developments in many fields which
00:08:44
include biology and Madison
00:08:46
communications computers networks
00:08:49
creating new systems that require
00:08:51
significant expansion of design that's
00:08:54
adults. So that's use activity two of
00:08:57
them are shown here the those are
00:08:59
fairly well is this started quite some
00:09:02
time ago with a the a several master
00:09:06
projects CTI project with to use these
00:09:10
and then six grudges is the guardians
00:09:12
have already been hired by this company
00:09:15
then we have also the activity with the
00:09:17
you have a much cleaning solutions
00:09:19
again this activity distorted ninety
00:09:21
five several most the projects and
00:09:24
three CTI projects with two use
00:09:27
discussions and also proposal coming
00:09:31
because work with which one oh on the
00:09:33
on ageing of mechanical watches with
00:09:36
the a better on only real buying
00:09:38
finalisation and control of so this we
00:09:41
got compressors john something like
00:09:43
electric with for sense of less
00:09:46
control. And then we've texarkana
00:09:48
control of multidimensional access
00:09:50
positioning exist I'd like to come now
00:09:54
to the activities of solids and
00:09:55
structures and I'll start with the
00:09:57
thought of a professional according the
00:10:00
image fourteen Islam user research on
00:10:02
uncovering and quantifying the
00:10:05
fundamental mechanisms of strengthening
00:10:07
underfunding in metals and they always
00:10:10
with the goal of creating predictive
00:10:13
models that can guide optimisation and
00:10:16
more design of existing. And new
00:10:18
materials here is this invest a
00:10:22
semantical also the activity we we I
00:10:26
the beginning is the out on not punk
00:10:29
simulations. And then it goes up to
00:10:32
continuing to continue level where the
00:10:35
coupon or the component is is tested
00:10:38
the application here are from or tools
00:10:42
aeroplanes as you can see to hour
00:10:44
session buyer and then to on unseen
00:10:46
batteries this activity has been found
00:10:49
that from general motors at brown
00:10:51
university the centre for completion
00:10:54
make on materials professor brown was
00:10:56
the sorry what's occurred was a problem
00:10:59
before you joined us a good few years
00:11:00
ago there also will support is common
00:11:06
also for the running so again via
00:11:08
problem and also here that for the the
00:11:10
constantly. And of course the products
00:11:14
can be any any product you can imagine
00:11:17
you wish you wish to to to develop yeah
00:11:21
this approach. So the taxes this is my
00:11:25
laboratory a a my the the activity in
00:11:29
my lab different durability the and
00:11:32
dynamics of mechanical systems
00:11:34
including structural optimisation. And
00:11:36
experimental mechanics of advanced
00:11:38
materials including optical techniques
00:11:40
for for done much characterisation I'll
00:11:46
show it to you to projects here that we
00:11:48
are working with industry one is on a
00:11:50
composite gauge for micro either be
00:11:52
okay. So again here is to to optimise
00:11:58
the structure this is problem in fact
00:12:01
okay it's to do it's to minimise the
00:12:04
wait for for performance of course and
00:12:06
then choose the material so that that
00:12:09
is not that much all at an impact of
00:12:13
maximum of fifteen kilometres per hour
00:12:17
this project is in collaboration also
00:12:19
with the initial materials yeah the
00:12:24
other one is on on do on characterising
00:12:30
the in the menu class of was in the
00:12:34
other because imply composites as you
00:12:36
probably know the convention of the the
00:12:38
standard the conventional well
00:12:40
thickness of supply on composes the is
00:12:44
in the order of two hundred microns the
00:12:46
the the company T and PD has developed
00:12:49
a technology where lyman a old or
00:12:54
twenty microns can be achieved less
00:12:58
they'll even lower so this materials
00:13:00
exhibited exceptional properties. And
00:13:03
our our world here in the lobbies to
00:13:06
characterise to characterise these
00:13:09
properties and then see how we can
00:13:10
improve the there's a consortium of
00:13:12
companies involved in this in this
00:13:14
project. So again as you can see here
00:13:17
the the and we have an impressive
00:13:20
improvement in strength two hundred
00:13:23
percent. And the what's on a set of
00:13:26
damage a and then ten times longer tick
00:13:30
light yeah I've got a lot more one more
00:13:36
activities for the structure which is
00:13:37
in my lab professor queries part of my
00:13:39
is is is is my colleague in in Thailand
00:13:42
the same lab. So here what we have done
00:13:45
is is the design of the glass medical
00:13:47
I'm opening system. So probably you
00:13:50
know do when you when we open it up by
00:13:53
just by the thumb there is there is
00:13:55
debris and spikes that are coming out
00:13:59
this structure that the beagle into the
00:14:02
medical fluid and of course this can
00:14:05
create on which or or affect or going
00:14:09
to the but eventually because of the
00:14:10
series that that delivers is so the
00:14:12
idea is here or the project was to
00:14:14
develop a opening system that minimises
00:14:18
the that we and makes this makes this a
00:14:23
save us a device so we have don quite a
00:14:27
bit experimentation modelling. And then
00:14:30
we came up with the prototype that you
00:14:32
see here the company is a syntactic
00:14:35
analyses his company that you know and
00:14:38
as far as I know this product is is
00:14:39
already commercialise the the
00:14:42
activities on energy I would like to
00:14:45
start with a lot of professional mother
00:14:47
cell in this lab the activities focused
00:14:50
on integrated processes and energy or
00:14:53
conversion conservation oh sorry
00:14:55
conversion system that image in the
00:14:56
grace ignoble energy resources and
00:14:59
supplied multiple energy services as
00:15:02
you can see here the he he he's acting
00:15:05
he's working on energy efficiency
00:15:08
process system design and then as a
00:15:10
system design and as you can see here
00:15:13
on the on the horizontal you see the
00:15:17
the the pertinent projects involved in
00:15:19
the energy efficiency then a second
00:15:21
processes and design. And the system on
00:15:24
the energy system design it there is
00:15:28
also a activity before I go into the
00:15:33
flutes I just want to show to you also
00:15:35
his apartment of purpose martial it's
00:15:39
it's the process industry starting from
00:15:41
food but we a mystery still last
00:15:44
segment have also there to just
00:15:46
services industrial services utility
00:15:48
companies equipment companies and of
00:15:52
course consulting the fruits the
00:15:56
professor got there investigates fluid
00:15:59
dynamics on the basis of uncluttered
00:16:02
simplified models this enables one to a
00:16:04
novel basic mechanism and doubling
00:16:06
parameters the two projects underway in
00:16:12
the lab from some colour one is with
00:16:14
the pose a looks high rotation be ring
00:16:17
with a deep bowl group the
00:16:21
collaborations since two thousand
00:16:23
twelve one master project and one DI
00:16:26
project with one engineer and then the
00:16:28
other one is what is break on and as a
00:16:31
I don't and having control good
00:16:33
collaboration since two thousand eleven
00:16:35
which the lab. Um and to one more this
00:16:40
year with the us what's group role of
00:16:44
dynamic forces some frequency all of
00:16:46
the pentagon and roll ex he's start you
00:16:49
can start to this this is active. Now
00:16:52
some numbers on the education here are
00:16:55
the figures you see the blue give us
00:16:57
the budget students the master students
00:17:00
the master students I read and the
00:17:02
total. I'm very pleased to tell you
00:17:04
that we are as you can see here we are
00:17:06
going we're increasing every year and
00:17:09
also we are the first section in STI
00:17:11
and the second on on the level of the
00:17:14
school we have six concentrations us
00:17:17
all at some structures energy I would
00:17:19
dynamics design a production control a
00:17:21
contradiction biomechanics here are
00:17:24
some examples of massive projects we
00:17:26
have the controls solace instructions
00:17:29
biomechanics energy Ireland I mix and
00:17:32
design and production. And here are the
00:17:36
industry in the ship's examples yeah
00:17:39
it's it's it's practically it's quite a
00:17:43
quite a few and I have listed here just
00:17:45
some so with this I'll stop. Thank you
