Interfacial Mechanics for Multi-Material Structures



报告题目:Interfacial Mechanics for Multi-Material Structures

报告人:  Prof. Kikuo Kishimoto (Tokyo Institute of Technology)





Modern machines and structures are composed of various types of materials to satisfy the design requirements. In order to ensure the safety and reliability, it is important to understand the interface strength of the multi-material structures. Multilayer structures composed of thin polymer films are also widely used. In this presentation, various approaches of interfacial mechanics are briefly reviewed and several testing methods developed for electrical-package and adhesive films are presented including adhesion test, peering test, probe tack test and Nano-indentation test. Some experimental results obtained by our group are presented. Fatigue strength test of steel and aluminum alloy joint is also introduced.
