Topic: Composite activation of high alumina coal gangue and the analysis on its pozzolanic effect
Abstract: On the purpose of developing new activity admixture for cement base material and broadening the comprehensive utilization way for High Alumina Coal Gangue(HACG) from Inner Mongolia, the activated effect of mechanically, thermally and chemically composite activation on HACG was studied by testing the strength of cement mortars with activated HACG，the relationship between its micro-structure under different calcining temperature and activated effect was studied using SEM, XRD and FT-IR. Taking the Strength Activity Index (SAI) and Contribution Rate of Pozzolanic Effect (CRPE) as the inspected object, the pozzolanic effect of the HACG being activated with different ways above was analyzed. The results show that the HACG can be activated to some extent by mechanical grinding, but the effect is limited. The HACG can be effectively activated by calcining, and the optimal calcining temperature is 800℃, at this temperature the kaolinite in HACG can be decomposed into high activated SiO2 and AI2O3, thus, the SAI and CRPE of cement mortars with HACG can reach to 126.5% and 44.7% respectively at 28d. The SAI and CRPE are further increased to 142.6% and 50.9% respectively while being calcinated with Ca(OH)2. After being calcinated with Ca(OH)2, 2% Na2SO4 being added, the compressive strength is up to 78.9 MPa, SAI up to 157% and CRPE up to 55.5% at the same age.

Topic: Future World Challenges: Conscious Collaboration for Food Supply Chain
Abstract: The world population is about 7.349 billion people and it is expected to grow by 32% to 9.725 billion by 2050. Food demand will roughly double in the next 35 years time and at the same time more land is being converted to housing and infrastructure facilities. Famine or lack of food is happening nowadays to almost 900 million starving because some of food are wasted or cannot be given just because of the supply chain problem. Supply Chain's challenges are increasing food availability, fixing food supply chain including decreasing damage, loss and wasting in supply chain. Food is a fundamental requisite for human existence. However, food chains are increasingly becoming complex and multi tiered. Therefore, one of the most needs of the world is collaboration for providing enough food purpose. What is needed is a conscious collaboration which is collaboration with a depth of awareness of partners and depth respectful for the similar purpose. Collaboration that is needed is a collaboration based on humanitarian purposes.
Biography: Lei Cui is a roboticist who designs and develops novel robots for various applications. His research has been motivated by the belief that rigorous mathematical results will enable engineering advancements while the practical aspects of implementation would drive theoretical progress. The goal of his work is to create sophisticated robotic systems by looking into nature for inspiration and applying computational robotics.
He received his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering in July 2010 from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, King’s College London (UK). He continued his employment as Postdoctoral Research Associate after graduation. In February 2011 he moved to the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University (US) and worked as Postdoctoral Fellow until July 2012. He then joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Curtin University (AU) and was appointed Lecturer in Mechatronics, which he currently holds.
He has been focusing on robotic hand design and its applications and is currently extending his expertise to hand exoskeleon for rehabilitation. Lei developed a novel three-fingered robotic hand with an articulated palm. The investigation of alternative plam forms led to the discovery of a series of novel overconstrained mechanisms. He creatively applied his expertise in modern differential geometry to the analysis and synthesis of the posture, workspace, and manipulability of this robotic hand. He then thoroughly investigated the kinematics of the robotic hand and identified the singularity-free range of motions by applying the singular-value-decompositon method. He further established a novel model of contact kinematics between fingertips and the grasped object by using the moving-frame method from modern differential geometry. A unique optimal approach was proposed to teleoperate a 24-DOF humanoid robotic hand. Recently he led a multi-disciplinary team to develop a highly portable 3D printable non-assembly hand exoskeleton adapted to individual’s anthropometric differences.
He currently resides in Perth, Australia, with his wife, Qin Yu, and his son, Haoqian Cui. He and his family have been enjoying kayaking and rowing in the Canning River, snorkelling in the Mettam’s Pool, and playing basketball in the Willetton Basketball Stadium.
Topic: Robotic Rehabilitation, Mechanism Design, Hand Exoskeleton
Abstract: Robotic rehabilitation has proven to be cost-effective in accelerating the rehabilitation process by eliminating the constant need for supervision by a therapist. We designed and developed a novel three-dimensional (3D) printable non-assembly five-fingered robotic hand exoskeleton for rehabilitation. A single degree-of-freedom (DOF) linkage was designed to actuate each finger with 3 output links that correspond to the three phalanxes of the human finger. We used a parametric modelling approach that suits the dimensions of individual’s hand. The fabrication of this dynamic model was achieved by printing the complete assembly including all the driving links, output links, and joints. We manufactured a prototype and developed real-time actuation and control. The reported unique linkage design, combined with parametric modelling and 3D printing technology, pave the way for mass customization of active assistive and resistive hand exoskeletons. This robotic exoskeleton can help the rehabilitation of post-tendon surgery and assist in daily living activities of people with degenerative muscular dystrophy.

Abstract: As a newly established University in Rahim Yar Khan the place which is directly linked with three provinces of Pakistan. This place should have to pay more attention to take its part to civilize the society of Pakistan. KFUEIT is the area where have green lands with high fertility and blue sky with warm sunshine. And poverty is the great teacher and scientists, Shazia friends have to collaborate with teacher by creating the link between academia, Industry and Health. Based on this Concept we have to establish the Material Research Centre where we give the best solutions of problems linked directly or indirectly to humanity. We have the program of the Diagnostic Labs with truthful and trustful results.
