University of Toyama, Professor, Solid Mechanics Laboratory
Department of Mechanical and Intellectual Systems Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

Title: "Change in magnetic field due to elastic-plastic deformation of structural steels"

Prof. Katsuyuki Kida  was born in 1968 in Osaka, where from 1988 he studied mechanical engineering at Osaka University. Apart from course work, he studied rolling contact fatigue (RCF) occurring in TiC and TiN coated steels using both X-ray diffraction and scanning acoustic microscopy. After graduation he pursued his academic career and completed a Ph.D. course in engineering mechanics in 2000, investigating RCF problems of all-Si3N4 bearings. By observing cracking and flaking failure under RCF, he succeeded in explaining the material`s features from the viewpoint of fracture mechanics. From 2000 he focused his work on investigating the contact problems of elements used in automobiles such as high-pressure pump of new type diesel engines. 

He has also continued the fundamental research on contact problems, which received 'The Best Paper Prize (FFEMS PRIZE)' from 'Fatigue & Fracture of Engineering Materials & Structures' journal in 2005 and 'AML-Scientist Award' from 'Advanced Materials Letters' journal in 2011. The awarded papers reported establishing a crack growth mechanism under contact pressure, a problem that had not been solved for over 70 years since S. Way's theory. Prof. Kida has been honored with prestigious 'IAAM Medal' of year 2013 for notable and outstanding research in the field of materials science & technology at 'Advanced Materials World Congress(AMWC 2013, cesme, Turkey, 16-19 September, 2013) from International Association of Advanced Materials. His research interests now include the development of three dimensional scanning Hall-probe microscope technologies, fatigue phenomena in polymer bearing, crack growth mechanism under contact stresses and refinement of high-carbon steels. 

He holds and has held a number of prestigious leadership roles In academy-industry corroboration programs : refinement of steels, new joint system in humanoid robots and fatigue of polymer bearing in "Strategic Fundamental Technologies Strengthening Assistance Programs" (Ministry of Economics, Trade and Industry, Japan, 2009-2013); scanning Hall-probe microscopy in "Fundamental Studies on Technologies for Steel Materials with Enhanced Strength and Functions" (Consortium of the JRCM, Japan, 2008-2012); and ceramic bearing elements in the project supported by "Japanese Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization" (NEDO, Japan, 2007-2011)."
