"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.

Bio: Dr. Zongjin LI is Chair professor at Institute of Applied Physics and Materials Engineering at University of Macau (UM). He joined UM after his service Hong Kong University of Science and Technology from 1994 to 2016. He received his B.E. from Zhejiang University, Hongzhou, China in 1982 and obtained both his M.S. and PhD from Northwestern University, Chicago, U.S.A, in 1990 in 1993, respectively. He is a fellow of American Concrete Institute and a registered professional engineer in Hong Kong, China. He is a member of committees of ISO/TC71, First vice Chair of China Group of RILEM and Founding President of ACI China Chapter.

He has done extensive researches in the area of cement-based materials and non-destructive evaluations. As the chief scientist, he has led a China Key National Basic Research Project (973), ‘Basic study on environmentally friendly contemporary concrete’, which has made a great contributions to advance concrete technology in China. As the founding chair of Gordon Research Conference, “Advanced Materials for Sustainable Infrastructure Development” in 2014, he has brought the research conference of building materials into a higher scientific level.

He has published 5 technical books, in which ‘Advanced Concrete Technology’ published by John Wiley has been collected by many national libraries and most major university libraries and used by many universities as text or reference books for civil engineering. He has also published more than 400 technical papers with a SCI H-index of 36 and Scopus H-index of 39. In 2016, he has been selected as the one of the 150 most cited authors in Civil engineering field. He has also been awarded five US and seven Chinese patents. Three of his patents have been developed into commercial products.

He received the Arthur R. Anderson Medal from American Concrete Institute in 2017 and Distinguished Visiting Fellowship Award from British Royal Academy of Engineering in 2014.

"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 developed.  

Bio: Dr. Sergei Alexandrov is a Visiting Professor at Beihang University (Beijing, China) under the program “Recruitment Program for Global Experts” (“1000 Talent Plan”) and a Research Professor at the Laboratory for Technological Processes of the Institute for Problems in Mechanics of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
