From June 3 to 6, the 6th International Conference on Fracture Mechanics of Materials and Structural Integrity was held in Lviv, Ukraine. Attending the conference were over 80 scholars from nine countries including Ukraine, China, the USA, Canada, Italy, Poland, Hungary, India, and Mexico.
During the conference, the 2019 Sino-Ukrainian Workshop on Applied Mechanics was jointly held by the College of Mechanical Engineering, Zhejiang University of Technology (ZJUT), as the sub-forum. It was the second time that the Sino-Ukrainian forum had been held following that in 2017. The 2019 workshop was co-hosted by the Institute of Technical Mechanics under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NAS of Ukraine), the College of Mechanical Engineering, and the Institute of Laser Advanced Manufacturing, ZJUT.
Professor Yao Jianhua, along with six members from the College of Mechanical Engineering, ZJUT, attended the workshop and delivered academic reports. They also exchanged opinions with experts from the Institute of Technical Mechanics, the NAS of Ukraine, and Lviv Polytechnic National University (LPNU) on current international scientific and technological cooperation.
During the discussion, Professor Oleh Matviykiv, Vice President of LPNU gave some suggestions on joint training and cooperation, and expressed the hope that both sides would work together to achieve further cooperation results.
In recent years, the College of Mechanical Engineering has signed agreements with Ukrainian universities and research institutes, continuously deepening international cooperation in high-end manufacturing and publicizing the international high-end talent introduction policy of ZJUT in order to respond to the need of development brought about by the “Belt and Road” initiative. Through exchanges in this conference, ZJUT further expanded the breadth and depth of cooperation with its Ukrainian counterparts.
The International Conference on Fracture Mechanics of Materials and Structural Integrity is held every five years since 1987. Professor Panasyuk Volodymyr V., Member of the NAS of Ukraine, served as the Conference Chairman this year, and Professor Yao Jianhua was Member of the Advisory Committee of the conference.
