|Dr Sylvie Castagne is an Assistant Professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering since July 2008. She received her PhD in Applied Sciences from the University of Liege, Belgium. She also graduated with a MSc in Applied Physics Engineering and a DEA in Applied Sciences from the same university, which encompass a broad range of physics, materials and engineering areas.
Before joining NTU, Sylvie worked in Singapore as a Senior Research Engineer at SIMTech (Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology) and as an Assistant Professor at the University of New South Wales Asia. She also acquired some experience in Aerospace Engineering through her work at the Centre of Excellence for Integrated Aircraft Technology (Queen’s University Belfast, UK, 2003-2006) and spent five years working as a Researcher in the Department of Mechanics of Structures and Materials (University of Liege, Belgium, 1998-2003), where her research focused on the modeling of metal forming processes and on the development of multi-scale finite element models for the analysis of damage and crack propagation in metals at high temperature.
|Dr Castagne's areas of expertise include micromechanics of materials, damage and fracture analysis and multi-scale constitutive modeling with application to the simulation of metal forming processes. She also has a background in digital manufacturing and systems engineering cost modeling. Currently, her research interests focus on the development of net shape and microforming processes with specific contributions regarding the analysis of size effects, tool failure and material thermomechanical processing.|
