Addressing negative effects of transport systems with large scale behavioral transportation simulations

BIO:  Kai Nagel is full professor for “Transport systems planning and transport telematics” at the Berlin Institute of Technology (TU Berlin), Germany. He was trained in physics and climate research, and holds a Ph.D. in informatics from University of Cologne, Germany. He worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA, from 1995 to 1999, at ETH Zürich from 1999 to 2004, and holds his current post since 2004. His research interests include large-scale transportation simulations, modeling and simulation of socio-economic systems, and large-scale computing. He leads a group of eight Ph.D. students, six of them funded from competetive sources including the German National Science Foundation and the EU. He has authored more than 100 publications. He is area editor of the journal “Networks and Spatial Economics”, member of TRB committee ADB10 “travel behavior and values”, and a frequent reviewer for a large number of scientific journals, scientific conferences, research proposals, and scholarships.

Crystal plasticity of polycrystalline aggregates under cyclic loading : 3D experiments and computations, size effects and fatigue cracking

BIO: Samuel Forest, 48 year old, is CNRS Research Director at Centre des Materiaux Mines ParisTech and continuum mechanics professor at Mines ParisTech. He is working on mechanics of materials focusing on crystal plasticity modelling and mechanics of generalized continua. He has beforesten the PhD advisor of 35 PhD students on these scientific topics, each of them corresponding to a contract with industrial partners (SAFRAN, RENAULT, EDF, Arcelor-Mittal, Michelin, CEA, EDF, etc.) or with the state and EU. He got the Bronze and Siver medals of CNRS INSIS and the Plumey prize of the Academie des Sciences. He published more than 120 papers in peer-reviewed international journals. He is associate editor of 5 international journals including Int. J. Solids Structures and Phil. Mag. He is leading the CNRS Federation of Mechanics labs in the Paris Region, promoting cooperation between 14 mechanics labs in the Paris region.
