Career Summary

Biography

Ho-Sung Kim's research covers a relatively wide range of research topics in the fields including complex assessment, fracture mechanics ( http://bookboon.com/en/mechanics-of-solids-and-fracture-ebook">http://bookboon.com/en/mechanics-of-solids-and-fracture-ebook</a>), fatigue, and manufacturing and properties of composite materials.

Ho-Sung Kim's most significant contribution has been in the creation of two major avenues in the area of composites, leading to various new fundamental theories for understanding new physical phenomena in particulate composites. One of the avenues in the research was opened by inventing a new method of micro-scale stress intensity factor manipulation. Since then, novel toughened thermosets have been developed. New toughening mechanisms have been found. Generalized conditions for fracture surface morphology have been developed and new analyses have been conducted. A new method for statistical analysis was developed. New criteria for toughening mechanisms have been developed. Another avenue in the research was opened by inventing new methods of manufacturing process of syntactic foams. (A syntactic foam is a composite made of hollow microspheres and binder.) The methods cover a wide range of families of light syntactic foam materials. New relevant theories for rules for mixtures, new concept in mathematical formulation, new mathematical expressions for manufacturing parameters and properties have been developed. One of the methods has been specifically targeted for development of building material which is potentially superior to conventional plaster boards in many ways. 

Ho-Sung Kim's another contibution is the relativity theory for complex assessment uncertainty, which  may be regarded as an important milestone in the morndern complex assessment. The concept for quantification adopted in the theory is applicable for the validity of educational assessment.

Ho-Sung Kim is director of research and development of Aceboard building product Pty Ltd, has been nominated as expert of international standing by the Australian Research Council (ARC) College of Experts and thus has contributed to assessments on ARC research proposals. He has been invited several times to international conferences in recognition of major contributions in the area of research. His research has led one of his PhD students to be awarded a Faculty of Engineering and Environment Post graduate Research prize in Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering in 2004. He has been regularly a session chairman in various international conferences. He has been invited IVW (Institute of Composite Materials), Kaiserslautern University of Technology, Germany, 2003 under auspices of DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Auatauschdienst) German Academic Exchange Service fellowship. He has been also invited to review numerous submitted research papers for international journals and international conferences, and PhD theses. He has been a member of various committees of international conferences.
