Title: Fretting wear induced mechanical failure: the role of plasticity type wear
Abstract: 
The needs to understand the plasticity driven wear mechanisms under fretting is fundamental. While plasticity induced wear behaviour might occur at the early stage of wear before a more standard Archard type wear is observed, the effect of early changes in the contact surface might change the stress concentration on certain regions in the contact. The potential crack initiated not only corresponds to fatigue damage but also on the effect of plasticity accumulation. Development of a plasticity induced wear model observed in fretting wear is important to improve the understanding during crack initiation stage. The model then can be incorporated in existing Archard wear model using finite element modelling to assess its effect on stresses and damages evolution with fretting cycle.
Biography: 
Dr Abdul Latif Mohd Tobi, graduated for his first degree from Nottingham University United Kingdom in 2007. There he was awarded with the Best International Student Prize. He continues his PhD direct after that at the Rolls-Royce Technology Centre of Nottingham University under the joint sponsorship award from Mechanical Engineering school and Rolls-Royce Technology Centre working on fretting wear of coated substrate. He completed his PhD in 2010. His research work being awarded as the Best Paper Award at 17th Elsevier Wear of Materials Conference 2009. He is currently an academic staff at Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia and headed the Biodiesel Pilot Plant in the university. His research works focus around wear, tribology and computational mechanics. He has been actively doing research with industries related to wear and stress analysis. He is also an active reviewer for Impact Factor journal of Wear and Tribology International in particularly in fretting wear area. He has participated in the scientific committee of several conferences and speaker for international conference.
