Seminar - Recent research progress in conventional spinning at University of Sheffield By Dr. Hui Long

Date: 05 September 2014 (Friday)

Time: 2:00 pm – 2:45 pm

Venue: EF305, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University


This talk will include two parts. In the first part the development of innovative
methods for characterizing the mechanical properties of nanowires, nanobelts and
ultrathin films will be introduced. In the second part the fundamental understanding of
deformation mechanisms of a thin film multilayered structure under mechanical loading
and its removal characteristics involved in abrasive machining will be discussed.

In this talk, the University of Sheffield at UK and an outline of recent research work carried out in the area of metal spinning will be introduced.


Dr Hui Long is a Reader in Mechanical Engineering, The University of Sheffield. She has 15 year’s research experience working in metal forming, welding and advanced material processing technology. Her research focuses on process modelling and optimisation to prevent material failures during processing and to control dimensional accuracy of manufactured parts. Research methods and techniques developed include new tool and process design, Finite Element analysis and optimisation, probabilistic modelling of process uncertainty, design of experiments, and experimental verification. As the Principal Investigator, she has received research funding from UK Industry, Technology Strategy Board, Royal Academy of Engineering, EPSRC and EU FP7 in recent years.

Dr Long has been a member of the Scientific Committee of two prestigious conferences in the metal forming field, the International Conference on Technology of Plasticity and the International Conference on Metal Forming. She is an Associate Editor and a member of the Editorial Board of the Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part B: Journal of Manufacturing Engineering.

Dr Long is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (FIMechE) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) in the UK.
