题目: Modelling stochastic materials structures
摘要:
For intrinsically heterogeneous materials, modelling the dependence of properties on structure and identifying opportunities for modify these through informed manufacturing requires consideration of probabilistic theory. In the first instance, we consider random processes of finite length fibres to model structures of paper, nonwoven veils for use in composites and silver nanowire networks with potential application in transparent conducting displays. We proceed to consider stochastic assemblies of infinite length fibres and the optimisation of electrospun polymer fibre scaffolds for tissue engineering. In closing, we demonstrate the application of probabilistic theoretical approaches to describe clustering of colloidal particles during self-assembly processes.

Professor Ping Xiao BSc, MSc, DPhil,Professor
Ping Xiao is currently a professor of Materials Science and Director of Internationalisation for School of Materials. He joined University of Manchester, Materials Science Centre as a Lecturer in 2001, then became Senior Lecturer in 2003, Reader in 2005, and Professor in 2008. Ping Xiao did his undergraduate and postgraduate study of Chemistry in Jilin University, P. R. China. He went to Oxford University to study Materials Science for DPhil since 1989, and became a postdoctoral research fellow in Oxford since 1993. Then he joined Brunel University as a Lecturer since 1996, and became Senior Lecturer in 2000.
Professor Ping Xiao’s research areas covers 1) thermal barrier coatings and environmental barrier coatings for aero-engine applications [1]; 2) ceramic coatings and ceramic composites for nuclear applications [2]; 3) development of coatings and composites for application in harsh environments [3]. His research team has been collaborating extensively with industry including Rolls-Royce, ALSTOM Power, BP, Morgan Advanced Materials, Bawtry Carbon International and Beijing Institute of Aeronautical materials, China.
Prof. Ping Xiao has been a member of Coatings and Surface Treatment Committee, Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals (IOM3), UK for more than 10 years, and also an editorial member of Journal of Nanomaterials, Advance in Applied Ceramics and Chinese Surface Engineering for more than 10 years. Recently he has become an editorial member of Chinese Journal of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
