Toward the Integration of Modern Techniques for Sediment-Related Hazard Assessment and for Mitigation against the Causal Disaster

In this talk, Professor Tai will brief the recently developed techniques for sediment-related hazard assessments, such landslides, debris flows, which consist of estimating the plausible failure surface/area as well as the flow paths of the released mass. In addition to the theoretical modeling works, a GPU-accelerated simulation tool is introduced for mimicking the subsequent flow paths, where the input and output data are linked to a 3D user-interactive illustration system for investigating various scenarios.

3D Metal Printing at NCKU/ME

A powder bed fusion process in additive manufacturing is introduced in three dimensional finite element heat transfer model to simulate the size of melt pool’s cross section for finding the optimal parameters to reduce the porosity and residual stress. In addition, the spatter from the melt pool is simulated by CFD to enhance the quality of the surface roughness in 3D parts. Also, the methodology in measuring the melt pool shape using a high-speed camera is implemented in the system for predicting the porosity of 3D parts based upon machine learning.

Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface Aided Communication

Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication is required to provide high data rate in next generation wireless networks. Programmable reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) provides an energy efficient way to combat severe signal attenuation or even blockage commonly encountered in mmWave communications. In this talk, the speaker introduces about performance analysis and challenges of beam training in RIS aided communication

Universe in Laboratory

One of the great challenges in modern physics is to understand the evolution of our Universe from the Big Bang to the state we observe today. Of particular interest is to unravel the microscopic properties of the two extreme states of strong-interaction matter that existed, on the one hand, almost 14 billion years ago in the early Universe and, on the other hand, is created when two neutron star merge as recently observed for the first time. The possibility to form and explore in the laboratory strong-interaction matter under conditions similar to those realized a few microseconds after the “Big Bang”, or to those in the interior of compact stellar objects, is truly fascinating. The physics of those extreme states of matter is of pivotal significance for understanding a fundamental aspect of nature.
