Welcome message

It is a great pleasure and honour to invite you to the 8th International Conference on Applications and Design in Mechanical Engineering (ICADME 2023) which will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 4 – 5 September 2023 with the theme of “HUMANISING MECHANICAL ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY FOR SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY”. While we regret that the COVID pandemic prevented us from holding the conference physically in 2021, as for this year we are excited about the opportunities of holding hybrid mode conference to reach a wider audience that a conference can possibly include. Participants from around the world are now can actively participate in this event.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering & Technology, Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) is organising the ICADME 2023 as joint conference with 8 other international conferences, focusing on different issues pertaining to their respective theme under The Global Trends in Engineering, Science & Technology Congress 2023 (GTEST2023) which will be held concurrently.

We are certain that this conference serves as an excellent platform to gather and disseminate the latest knowledge in recent advancements in emerging areas of diversified research fields and also create networking on various areas of interest for all academics, researchers, scientists, engineers, interest groups and industry experts from all around the world through several sessions both physically and virtually.

You can expect a very fruitful and pleasant time in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We look forward to welcome you in Malaysia for the 8th International Conference on Applications and Design in Mechanical Engineering (ICADME 2023).

Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohd Sapuan Salit has been selected as the keynote speaker for ICADME 2023, where he will deliver a speech entitled "Design for sustainability: The roles of biopolymer composites". Design for sustainability is based on the combination of product innovation and sustainability. United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) Design for sustainability rules of thumb emphasised, among others, on the importance of using cleaner materials, renewable materials, recyclable materials, and materials with positive social impact in the design process. Biocomposites fulfilled all these rules. Understanding the underlying concept of product innovation can help implementing design for sustainability project. Idea generation phase of design refers to the creative component of product development process. In this phase, various concepts were generated, put forward and used to generate new solutions, using different techniques. In this research, different techniques were used to generate design concepts for biocomposite products such as TRIZ, biomimetics, mindmapping and morphology chart. Biocomposites are emerging materials mainly obtained from plants; where their resources are renewable, recyclable, clean, able to generate local income, low cost, light weight and safe to use in addition to comparable specific strength and stiffness to selected traditional materials. Conceptual design of different products developed from biocomposites is presented including in car components, traditional tooth brush, bicycle and safety helmets, food packaging, motorcycle components, and furniture. In addition, the biocomposite materials used in such applications are described in terms of materials (fibre and matrix selection process, fabrication techniques, life cycle assessment, and performance. Advantages and disadvantages of biocomposites in such applications are also presented. Innovation in design also helped in improving the mechanical performance of biocomposites such as through sandwich structures, nanoscale materials, additive manufacturing, lamination technology, hybridization and blends, and the incorporation of design features such as ribbing, and bosses. Industrial application of biocomposites is discussed for commercial scaled sustainable production.

With his vast experience and extensive research in the field of composite materials, Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohd Sapuan Salit keynote speech will explore the potential of biopolymer composites as a sustainable alternative to traditional materials in a circular economy. His talk will offer attendees valuable insights into the latest advancements in this field, along with practical strategies for effectively integrating biopolymer composites into sustainable design practices.
