Title: 
Numerical simulation of breakup of concrete magazine due to accidental internal explosion and determination of its debris hazard zone

Abstract:
This talk will give an overview and a summary of the research findings obtained from the study of explosion hazards from Earth Covered Magazine (the ECM project in short). The ECM project is one of the major research projects conducting under the Protective Technology Research Centre of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. The main objective of the ECM project is to formulate practical guidelines to predict the hazards from the breakup and the debris generated from above-ground, earth covered magazines due to internal  explosion. The ECM project also aimed to develop practical engineering tools (in form of a computer program with user-friendly GUI) for the prediction of Inhabited Building Distance of the ECM. In order to predict and quantify the hazards from internal explosion of ECM, the main research works of this project involves theoretical, numerical and experimental investigations of (1) high strain rate break up behaviours of reinforced concrete structures and earth cover subjected to internal explosion, (2) intersections of high-speed flying debris with surrounding air and (3) the effect of bounce and ricochet of debris on the final debris dispersion range. In addition, some preliminary studies have also been conducted to explore the possibility to develop a debris trajectory tracing method. The ECM project is a multi-institutional project that involves many research parties including the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA), Singapore, two Schools of NTU (Civil and Environmental Engineering, CEE and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, MAE), the Ernst-Mach-Institut (EMI), Germany and Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), Netherlands.

Title: 

The graphene-based Materials and its Application for Energy Storage



Abstract:

Graphene is an advanced material widely studied for energy storage and energy conversion applications. In this presentation N-doped graphene is first used as the non-Pt catalyst for oxygen reduction reaction in H2-O2 fuel cell. The nature of the active center and the reaction mechanism are discussed.
Graphene is also shown to greatly enhance the performance of the graphene/polymer, graphen/Si , graphene/FeN, graphene/MoS2 composites when they
are employed as the electrodes for energy storage in supercapacitor and Li ion battery.

Title:

Connecting the Dots – Balancing Humans and Computers

 

Abstract:

On the surface, Human–computer Interaction (HCI) may appear to be a very broad field without clear focus. There are a great number of HCI researchers from multiple disciplines working on a wide variety of problems that seem to have little connection with each other. However, underneath most of the problems is one underlying principle: how to seek the optimal balance between humans and computers? As our field is rapidly growing, it is easy to get buried in the details and lose sight of the overall vision.  In this talk, I will argue that it is imperative that we don’t lose sight of this fundamental principle, and will try to illustrate this guiding principle using a number of systems developed in the NUS-HCI lab, including SandCanvas, Vignette, Magic Cards, etc. The talk will end with a discussion of the prospect of human-computer interaction in the future.
