Keynote Speaker 1
CNRS Full time researcher
Robotics, Laboratoire des Sciences du Numérique de Nantes (LS2N)
Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France
Dr. Stéphane Caro is the head of RoMas (Robot and Machines for Manufacturing, Society and Service) research group in the Laboratoire des Sciences du Numérique de Nantes (LS2N), France and full time researcher of the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), France. Furthermore, he also work at IRT Jules Verne (The French Technological Research Institute – Jules Verne).
After completing his post-doctoral degree in the Centre for Intelligent Machines, McGill University, Montreal, Canada, he was awarded the accreditation to supervise research. He took significant roles in the analysis and synthesis of parallel manipulators, and in relatively new robot type, named Cable-driven parallel robots. Dr. Stéphane Caro and his students carry out researches related to conceptual design of parallel robots, robust design, kinematic analysis and synthesis, singularity analysis, tolerance analysis, and design optimization.
Keynote Speaker 2
Associate Professor of Department of Mechanical Engineering
Kanoshita Laboratory, Wind Tunnel Laboratoty
Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan
Dr Eng Nobumasa Sekishita currently is associate professor of Dept. Mechanical Engineering, Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan. His research interests span from fluid engineering, wind engineering, to fluid measurement. He is working in the laboratory of Wind Tunnel or Kanoshita Laboratory.
Kanoshita laboratory investigates a buoyancy jet, a plane jet and a sphere wake by using wind tunnels. Turbulent structures in these flow fields are measured by a hotwire anemometer and visualized by the smokewire method. Base on the results, the effects of turbulent motion on heat-mass transfer, entraining ambient fluid and turbulent transition are clarified experimentally. These researches contribute to mixing efficiency, drag reduction, etc. Wind tunnel simulations in high Reynolds number turbulence fields are also conducted to evaluate wind environments around a high-rise building, substances diffused from a chimney by the turbulent shear flow generator developed by Prof. Makita.
