Keynote Speaker III

Prof. FU Ming Wang
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong

Biography: M.W. FU joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU) in Aug, 2006. Before he went to Singapore for his career development in 1995, Prof Fu had worked in the Mainland China as a faculty member and also been seconded to industry for technology development such that he has an in-depth understanding and appreciation of industries. In this tenured period of his first academic career, Dr Fu had conducted a number of R&D projects funded by governmental funding agencies and industries. Some governmental ad-hoc projects led by him have been successfully applied in industries. In 1991 and 1994, he received the honorary awards of Outstanding Young Teacher and Outstanding Teacher from the Ministry of Aeronautic and Astronautic Industries of P.R. China. In 1992 and 1995, he was promoted to associate and full professor, respectively, under the fast-track promotion scheme for outstanding young faculty members. Upon completion of his PhD study in the National University of Singapore in 1997, he joined the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology as a senior research engineer in the same year. For his ten-year tenured career in this national R&D Institution of Singapore, his research endeavors are more focused on development of state-of-the-art product design and development and metal forming technologies. In addition, he initiated a few new research directions in the Institute, which include micro-scaled product development via microforming, CAE-enabled metal forming product and process design, etc.

After joined the HK PolyU in 2006, Dr Fu is quite active in exploring advanced materials processing, numerical modeling and simulation, product design and development, and micro-mechanics by using computer-aided design and finite element simulation technologies to seek an epistemological understanding of the science behind materials processing and micro-mechanics, advancing knowledge in these areas, and further successfully addressing a plethora of challenges and bottleneck issues in the exploration arena. To support these research activities, he has secured 8 research projects from the General Research Fund (GRF), Innovation and Technology Fund from the Innovation and Technology Commission of Hong Kong Government, and the National Science Foundation of China after 2007, and also various internal funds from the HK PolyU.

In terms of research publication, Dr. Fu has about 165 published/accepted SCI journal papers with the H-index of 32 in Dec 2016. He has published 4 monographs in English by Marcel Dekker (New York), Springer-Verlag London Ltd, and CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group. The latest one will be published in Sept 2017. The Chinese version of "Computer-aided Injection Mould Design and Manufacture" was published in 2010 by the Press of Chinese Mechanical Engineering in the Mainland China. In addition, his paper entitled "Dimensional accuracy and deformation behaviors in meso-scaled progressive forming of two-level flanged parts" was awarded "Honorable Mention Paper Award" in the 4M/ICOMM2015 organized by the 4M Association and the International Institution for micro-manufacturing in Milan, Italy, 31st March to 2nd April, 2015, an important conference in manufacturing arena. Another paper entitled "Microheading Process: Deformation and Realization" was awarded the Outstanding Paper in the 7th Inter. Conf. on Micro-manufacturing, Chicago, USA, 2012. His original research contribution paper entitled "Ductile Fracture: Experiments and Computations" published in the Int. J. of Plasticity in 2011 is listed as the Highly Cited Paper in Web of ScienceTM. His another paper published in Int J of Adv Manuf Tech in 2013 on micro-forming technology is also a Highly Cited Paper.

Dr. Fu is a Senior Member of Society of Manufacturing Engineers. He is also sitting in the Editorial Board or as a regional editor in some longstanding journals, which include: International Journal of Plasticity (SCI journal); Materials and Design (SCI); International Journal of Damage Mechanics (SCI); International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology (SCI); The Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering-English (SCI); The Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering-Chinese; Manufacturing Review (SCI); Advances in manufacturing (SCI); Int Journal of light materials and manufacturing; Int. J. of Computer Aided Engineering and Technology.

In addition, Dr Fu is also serving as an invited reviewer for many SCI journals, prestigious project award, funding application, and PhD dissertation examination. He also actively serves as session chair and a scientific/organizing committee member for a number of international conferences in his research areas. In the past a few years, Dr Fu gave many keynote presentations or invited talks for some prestigious international conferences in his research areas.
