When HU and CSIR signed the MoU in October, 2018, the representative applicant was visiting CSIR-NML in Jamshedpur in order to seek the possibilities on any collaborations with HU. He obtained an opportunity for presenting his recent research works there. In addition to the presentation, the brief introduction on HU was made. At that time, he also joined all the events prepared and actively discussed and exchanged the information for the collaborations with several researchers including the head of CSIR-NML. Since his visit, the two and half years are past in the pandemic. However, to express the possible collaborations into the actual form, several discussions with the researchers in NML has been made. As the result, collaborated online workshop is proposed, and they agreed with his proposition.
The planed session provides two researchers from HU and CSIR-NML to discuss anything about the following contents about the structural materials with high functions.
- Understand the interest and capabilities of the organizations in:
- New materials development for high functional structure including alloy design, material characterization, mechanical property evaluation, etc.
- Mathematical modelling including high strain rate material processes, formulating a joint action plan
- Sheet metal formability and mathematical modelling
- Identification of specific research areas of mutual interests
- Explore the possibility of a formal collaborative platform
- Impact tests and finite element simulation of martensitically-transformed steel, Dr. Takeshi Iwamoto (HU)
- An overview of material development activities and research facilities at CSIR-NML, Dr. Vikas Srivastava (CSIR-NML)
- Floating structure for offshore wind turbine and its structural member, Dr. Yoshikazu Tanaka (HU)
- Alloy design and processing of some key structural materials, Dr. Gopi K. Mandal (CSIR-NML)
