Professor Jun Chen
Professor Jun Chen received his PhD degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in 1996, and used to be a visiting scholar at The University of Michigan and Ford Motor Company during April 1998 – April 1999. He has been full professor since August, 2004, and is now also serving as the head of Department of Plasticity Technology of SJTU and director of Shanghai Research Institute of Tool & Die Technology. His research topics include advanced material stamping/incremental sheet metal forming, constitutive modeling and numerical simulation of metal forming etc. He has jointly published more than 200 journal papers and 30 conference papers, and served as co-chair, key-note speaker, member of scientific committee and session chair of 18 international conferences and workshops, and editorial member of 4 journals.
Professor Emeritus Per Ståhle
I address problems in the theoretical and applied mechanics of solids. My research involves stress corrosion, hydrogen embrittlement and fracture mechanics. I focus on the mechanical conditions leading to dissolution of materials, instabilities at material surfaces, growth of precipitates biological tissue and initiation and growth of cracks.
In 1987 I became Prof. of Solid Mechanics at Uppsala Univ. (87), Assoc. Prof. in (89-90) at Brown University, UC Santa Barbara (92), Visiting Prof. at Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing (97) and 2009 Prof. and 2018 Prof. Emeritus at Lund Univ.
From (04-09) I was the chairman of the National Committee for Mechanics at the Swedish Royal Academy of Science, correspondent of EuroMech, expert for the Swedish Research Council, the NATO Collaborative Research Council and the Royal Society of London. Swedish representativ in The International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics since 2012. Officer of European Structural Integrity Society since 2015. Official Elsevier blogger for the International Journal of Engineering Fracture Mechanics.
