Mr. Weiqun LI and Mr Jimin FU, two PhD students from Department of Mechanical Engineering, received the Best Student Presentation Awards at the 19th Annual Conference of The Hong Kong Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (HKSTAM) held at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology on 28 March 2015.
The 19th Annual Conference of HKSTAM 2015 was co-organized by The Hong Kong Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The conference topics cover mechanics and its application in all science and engineering disciplines. The one-day conference featured four distinguished lectures and 47 presentations in 8 parallel sessions. Student participants were provided opportunities to present their research work during the presentation sessions. Based on the assessment results by referees, eight best students were awarded the Best Student Presentation Award.
Mr. Weiqun LI is a second-year PhD candidate. He is doing research on revealing the mechanics of durability and reliability of energy materials under the joint supervisions of Dr. Haimin YAO and Prof. Limin ZHOU. Mr. Jimin FU is a second-year PhD candidate. He is devoted to the study on micro-and nanotribology of natural biomaterials under the joint supervisions of Dr. Haimin YAO and Prof. Sanqiang SHI.
