"Recently developed non-destructive evaluation techniques for concrete"
Abstract: Nondestructive test for concrete refers to the measurement, inspection, or analysis of concrete materials or structures without destroying the integrity of concrete materials and structures.
The nondestructive test is helpful for the assessment of the stability of fresh and hardened concretes. It is very useful for condition assessments, maintaining and repairing the existing concrete constructions. Nondestructive testing on concrete can be used to make reliability evaluation and to assess the integrity of a concrete structure and to monitor the conditions of a construction. Nondestructive testing on concrete also can act for the quality control of fresh concrete, optimal maintenance of existing concrete buildings, and building diagnostics to inspect systems to prevent premature failure. In general, Nondestructive testing on concrete can make a significant contribution to evaluating and guaranteeing a concrete structure safety.
In this talk, several advanced nondestructive test methods on concrete developed recently are introduced. These methods include: newly developed noncontact electrical resistivity measurement method for porosity assessment and hydration process monitoring of fresh concrete, cement-based acoustic emission technique for corrosion and crack detection in hardened concrete, and embedded ultrasonic cement-based piezoelectric technique for concrete hydration and traffic monitoring. The principle and application of these novel methods will be addressed.

"Ideal Flow Theory for Material Forming Design"
Abstract: Ideal flows have been defined elsewhere as solenoidal smooth
deformations in which an eigenvector field associated everywhere with
the greatest principal strain rate is fixed in the material. Under such
conditions all material elements undergo paths of minimum plastic work,
a condition which is advantageous for material forming processes. The
ideal flow theory has been used as the basis of a procedure for the
preliminary design of such processes. In particular, the distribution of
strain and material properties is uniform in the final product of steady
processes. The ideal flow theory has been long associated with the
Tresca yield criterion and its associated flow rule. The objective of
the present paper is to extend this theory to the double shearing model
that is widely adopted in pressure – dependent plasticity. Both steady
and nonsteady plane strain and axisymmetric processes are considered. An
efficient numerical approach for design of metal forming processes is
