Keynote Speaker


Prof. Yoshihiko Uematsu,Gifu University, Japan

Yoshihiko Uematsu graduated from Department of Mechanical Engineering, Kyoto University in 1990, and got M.E from Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University in 1992. He completed his PhD work entitled “Mode I delamination of unidirectionally carbon fiber reinforced polymer matrix composite at elevated temperatures” at Kyoto University in 1995. His work was about creep-fatigue interaction effect on delamination behavior in CFRP. Then he worked as Assistant Professor in Department of Mechanical Engineering, Osaka University. His research topics were about fatigue properties and fatigue crack propagation of structural materials. During 2001-2002, he worked as a guest researcher in Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. In 2004 he moved to Gifu University as Associate Professor in Department of Mechanical Engineering, and became full Professor in 2011. His paper entitled “Development of fatigue testing system for in-situ observation by an atomic force microscope and small fatigue crack growth behavior in α-brass” got the best paper award from The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) in 2004. His recent research interests are about fatigue fracture mechanisms in light-weight alloys, weldments, severely-deformed materials, and so on. He published more than 140 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals. He is now a director of the Society of Materials Science, Japan (JSMS), executive secretary of Japan Welding Society, Tokai branch and representative member of The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME).
