This seminar will be chaired by Prof Upadrasta Ramamurty.

Seminar Abstract

Over the past 3 decades, nanoindentation has been used to measure the various mechanical properties of the small volume in a material at much smaller loads and size scales than conventional micro-/macro-indentations. Now, the nanoindentation technique is being considered not only as a characterizing tool but as a promising technology for better understanding of the mechanisms of small-scale mechanical/physical behavior from materials science viewpoints. In this talk, based on the research of my group and colleagues, I would like to introduce which properties can be "additionally" estimated by nanoindentation and then to explain how this becoming-somewhat-old technique can be "still" very useful in the research and development of advanced structural materials.

Speaker’s Biography​
Jae-il Jang is a professor of Division of Materials Science and Engineering at Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea. He received a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degree in metallurgical science and engineering from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea. He joined Hanyang University in 2005 as an Assistant Professor, then promoted to full Professor in 2014, and served as division head from 2014 to 2018. Prior to joining Hanyang University, he was postdoctoral fellow and then research assistant professor at the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA. 
He served as a Secretary, a Treasurer, and a chair of Mechanical Behavior Committee in Korean Institute of Metals and Materials (KIM that is the biggest materials research society in Korea) and is now in the editorial 
positions for 4 SCIE journals. His research group specializes in analysis of the small-scale deformation and fracture, particularly using instrumented indentation and nanomechanical testing techniques.
