About Speaker Presentation

Dr. Maosen Cao is a full professor in the Department of Engineering Mechanics at Hohai University, PRC. His specific areas of interest relate to structural durability and integrity assessment, health monitoring, damage modeling and identification, disaster prevention and mitigation, and multiscale vibration and dynamics. He is currently director of the Institute of Engineering Vibration and Dynamics of the University; deputy dean of the Co-Innovation Centre of Safety and Health S&T on Civil Infrastructures (involving 9 universities and institutes); dean of academic work committee of the Theoretical and Applied Mechanics Society of Jiangsu Province; principal of Outstanding S&T Innovation Team in Structural Integrity and Safety; standing director of the Chinese Society of Health Monitoring and Risk Warning of Equipment & Structure; member of ASCE, ASME, IEEE, and SPIE.

Dr. Cao earned his PhD in 2005 from the College of Civil Engineering at Hohai University, also winning the National Doctoral Dissertation Award with 1 million CNY financial support for follow-up research. He conducted research into structural vibration and health monitoring for six years at Washington State University, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS) supported by the Marie Curie Fellowship for experienced researchers funded by the European Commission. He is the author/co-author of 150 papers in structural vibration analysis, health monitoring, and integrity assessment, including over 50 papers in top-tier international journals such as SHM, JSV, MSSP, SMS, IJSS, and APL, with high IF and other scholars’ citations (600+ in Web of Science). He has successfully secured research grants in the capacity of principal investigator from various government agencies, e.g., 4 NSF projects from the National Science Foundation Committee in China, 12 International Cooperative Research Projects with leading experts from 15 countries and organizations, e.g., the U.S. and EU.

Dr. Cao has contributed to a number of international conferences. He was the Chair of the 19th International Conference on Vibration Theories, Approaches and Technologies in Infrastructure Engineering, the Vice-Chair of Organization Committee of the 3rd and 4th International Conferences on Structural Health Monitoring and Integrity Management, and the Technical Committee Chair of the 3rd Annual Conference of Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering. He has delivered over 40 plenary speeches, invited talks, and public seminars at international conferences and universities in various countries. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Vibroengineering, Vibroengineering Procedia, and the Journal of Measurement in Engineering, and was the Guest Editor of Complexity, Shock and Vibration. Research outcomes have brought significant honors and awards, typically the prestigious European-Chinese Dragon-STAR Innovation Award, funded by the European Commission; two National Natural Science Awards of MOE in PRC.

Nonlinear Mechanical System Simulation Based on Modal Coordinates and Modal Forces

In a project at Beihang university different methods to model, simulate and identify nonlinear mechanical systems are studied. One promising method to simulate forced response in nonlinear mechanical systems is based on modal coordinates and modal forces. The method allows many input forces and many nonlinearities to be handled simultaneously. The method is briefly described here together with a simple example.

Conference participants will have a chance to go on a tour to Suzhou, major city located in southeastern Jiangsu Province of East China, located about 100km northwest of Shanghai. It is a major economic center and focal point of trade and commerce, also not to mention the cultural sites of the city. The city's canals, stone bridges, pagodas, and meticulously designed gardens have contributed to its status as one of the top tourist attractions in China. The Classical Gardens of Suzhou were added to the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997 and 2000. Suzhou is often dubbed the "Venice of China". (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzhou)

The price for a tour will depend on the number of participants registered for the tour as it’s not mandatory, but the expected price of a tour per person is 120 USD which, if requested, can be merged together with the registration fee for the conference.
