[en] The aim of present work is approbation of the developed technique for assessing innovations’ effectiveness. We demonstrate an alternative assessment of innovations’ effectiveness (innovation projects) in mechanical engineering on illustrative example. It is proposed as an alternative to the traditional method technique based on the value concept and the method of “ Cash flow ”. (paper)
[en] The International Conference on Applications and Design in Mechanical Engineering 2017 (ICADME 2017) was held on 21-22 August 2017 in Penang, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Malaysia. ICADME 2017 was organized by Mechanical Engineering Programme in School of Mechatronic Engineering, Universiti Malaysia Perlis. The ICADME 2017 aims to provide a platform for participants from diverse field of Mechanical Engineering backgrounds to exchange ideas and findings to promote cooperation, networking as well as knowledge sharing in both engineering practice and research in higher education. The conference includes the fields of Applied Mechanics, Themofluids and Energy as well as Design and Manufacturing. The conference received more than 100 papers from Malaysia and other countries over the world. After a rigorous peer-review process, 84 papers were accepted. The accepted papers that focused on theory, applications, design and experimental studies relevant to mechanical engineering field were invited to present in this conference. I wish to record my gratitude to all reviewers, both local and international, for their time and effort in reviewing the papers. Their feedbacks to the authors have been excellent and useful to ensure the high quality of papers for the conferences. My sincere thanks also go to all sponsors for their generosity. Last but not least, I would like to thank also the organizing committee members for their hard work, cooperation and suggestions in ensuring the success of this conference. Ir. Dr. Khairul Salleh Basaruddin Chairman ICADME 2017 (paper)
[en] We have built a simple mechanical system to emulate the fast-start performance of fish. The system consists of a thin metal beam covered by a urethane rubber, the fish body and an appropriately shaped tail. The body form of the mechanical fish was modeled after a pike species and selected because it is a widely-studied fast-start specialist. The mechanical fish was held in curvature and hung in water by two restraining lines, which were simultaneously released by a pneumatic cutting mechanism. The potential energy in the beam was transferred into the fluid, thereby accelerating the fish. We measured the resulting acceleration, and calculated the efficiency of propulsion for the mechanical fish model, defined as the ratio of the final kinetic energy of the fish and the initially stored potential energy in the body beam. We also ran a series of flow visualization tests to observe the resulting flow patterns. The maximum start-up acceleration was measured to be around 40 m s-2, with the maximum final velocity around 1.2 m s-1. The form of the measured acceleration signal as function of time is quite similar to that of type I fast-start motions studied by Harper and Blake (1991 J. Exp. Biol. 155 175-92). The hydrodynamic efficiency of the fish was found to be around 10%. Flow visualization of the mechanical fast-start wake was also analyzed, showing that the acceleration peaks are associated with the shedding of two vortex rings in near-lateral directions.
[en] Engineering thinking is regarded as the quality of the person, which is stimulating the human need for the creation of new techniques, technologies and materials. Applications in the study of competence approach allows us to consider a professional thinking as one of the core competencies required for successful engineer innovations in mechanical engineering. The author's definition of professional engineering thinking is presented. The ways of its formation at students of technical fields enrolled in university courses are illustrated (paper)
[en] The 2017 International Conference on Design and Manufacturing Engineering (ICDME 2017) was successfully held at Guangdong University of Technology, Guangzhou, a famous megacity for remarkable history and fine cuisine, China from August 1-3, 2017. Guangzhou also has the most dynamic and pioneering economy with fast growing manufacturing sector spearheaded by automotive and shipbuilding industries, among many others, demanding the latest knowledge and technology for creative products and efficient manufacturing process in meeting challenges of future manufacturing technology. The ICDME 2017 reflected the technology needs of Guangzhou and beyond with its global participation and diverse but focused topics concerning design and manufacturing engineering presented in the truly international conference. This proceeding contains the reviewed papers presented at the ICDME 2017 and covered most hot and important issues related to the design and manufacturing engineering of many industries with a focus on the automotive technology. The ICDME 2017 conference program consisted of presentations in forms of keynote, oral, and poster from researchers, engineers, and graduate students working in fields of materials science, mechanical engineering, measurement technology, materials processing, and design methodology to report novel methods, findings, and designs. Although in its second since the inception, the ICDME has positioned itself as a platform for technical exchanges, academic promotion, and collaboration enabling for participants with diverse interests, background, objectives, and expertise. With the fast globalization of technology and manufacturing, technical issues must be discussed and disseminated in a global forum participated by researchers and engineers with international experiences and activities. This goal of the ICDEM is well achieved by the international participants from countries with extensive technology development such as Egypt, Malaysia, Turkey, in addition to more active countries like Germany, China, Canada, India, and Australia. As its tradition, in this year’s ICDME, there were keynote talks presented by internationally renowned scholars from top institutions with broad topics on design and manufacturing. Then there were sessions focused on materials, signal analysis, vehicular engineering, machine structures, mechatronics, and robotics with oral presentations and posters. Papers in this volume are selections based on reviews from the conference technical committee and they reflected the high quality and broad technical interests of the conference. We want to express our gratitude to all members of conference committees and reviewers who spent their valuable time for the successful conference with carefully organized programs, well-planned sessions, high quality conference papers, and pleasant social hours and events. We would also like to thank all authors who have contributed to this conference and committee members, reviewers, speakers, session chairs, sponsors, and support staff for the great success of ICDME 2017.

[en] Nanotechnology, along with Information Technology (IT) and Bio-technology (BT), has been regarded as a core area that will drive technological revolution of 21st century. South Korea and other countries with advanced scientific and technological research programs are investing heavily in the field, and among its various aspects, nanomaterial industry is considered to be at the heart of this global competition. In this review, we look at nanomaterials industry from the perspective of mechanical engineering. Nanomaterials exhibit unique characteristics differing from those of micron, or sub-micron sized materials, and hence are potentially able to open up new opportunities. Specifically, environmental and biological sciences, energy, and catalysis are areas that are expected to benefit from these developments.
