Seminar - Processing and Mechanical Properties of Advanced
Al-Si Based Alloys by Prof. Mok-Soon KIM
Date: 01 November 2012 (Thursay)
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm
Venue: EF305, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Al-Si based alloys are potential light-weight structural materials for automotive engine components because of low density, high wear resistance and low thermal expansion. In this presentation, processing of powder metallurgical Al-Si based alloys, focusing on advanced automotive engine piston, was addressed. High temperature deformation behavior and mechanical properties of the alloys were evaluated and discussed in connection with microstructural analysis.
Professor Mok-Soon KIM received his B.S. from the Inha University, Incheon, Korea in 1981, M.S. and Ph.D at Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan from 1986 to 1989. He worked as a Senior Research Engineer at R&D Center, Sumitomo Light Metal Ind., Ltd. Nagoya, Japan from 1989 to 1995. He is the professor of Division of Materials Science & Engineering, Inha University since 1995. His current research is aluminum alloys including alloy design, deformation processing and mechanical behavior and also High temperature alloys including titanium aluminides and Brazing & soldering.
