Nonlinear phenomena are ubiquitous in all engineering systems and in most cases regarded as negative factors to system integration and performance improvement. However, the research development on nonlinear dynamics nowadays continuously reveals that nonlinear phenomena can bring many amazing and advantageous effects in very practical engineering problems such as vibration control, energy harvesting, structure health monitoring, micro/nano-electro-mechanical systems, and so on. Nonlinearity can be employed in various vibration control, energy harvesting and structure health monitoring for achieving advantageous performance. Following the first and second seminars, the third and fourth talks will then focus on a brief introduction to a series of recent advance in exploring nonlinear benefits in engineering: theory, methods and applications. Some R&D activities will be introduced about a class of bio-inspired anti-vibration structures and their applications in passive vibration control, energy harvesting systems, fault detection and diagnosis and robotics etc, recently investigated in HK PolyU.
Xingjian Jing (M’13, SM’17) received the B.S. degree from Zhejiang University, China, in 1998, the M.S. degree and PhD degree in Robotics from Shenyang Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in 2001 and 2005 respectively. He achieved the PhD degree in nonlinear systems and signal processing from University of Sheffield, U.K., in 2008.
He is now an Associate Professor with the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). Before joining in PolyU as an Assistant Professor in Nov 2009, he was a Research Fellow with the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton. His current research interests include: nonlinear dynamics, vibration, and control, with a series of publications of more than 5000 citations and H-index 39 in Google Scholar.
Dr Jing is the recipient of a series of academic and professional awards including 2016 IEEE SMC Andrew P. Sage Best Transactions Paper Award, 2017 TechConnect World Innovation Award in US, 2017 EASD Senior Research Prize in Europe and 2017 the First Prize of HK Construction Industry Council Innovation Award. He has published more than 180 referred SCI papers and obtained a number of patents filed in China and US.
He currently serves as Technical Editor of IEEE/ASME Trans. on Mechatronics, and Associate Editor of Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing. He was the lead editor of a special issue on “Exploring nonlinear benefits in engineering” published in Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing 2019.
