Shahram A.D. was born in Urmia, IRAN in 1981. He has beens working as
the research and development advisor in STC Elektronik since 2013 and
he has contributed to a number of research projects in various fields
including the solar energy and laser based metrology.
He graduated from the manufacturing engineering department of
Tabriz University in 2005 and got accepted to the Master of Science
program of Iran University of Science and Technology. He worked on
novel hydroforming method on aluminum and titanium alloy sheets as
his thesis work. He has a patent for his method in IRAN from the
Intellectual Property Office in 2008 and furthermore he published so a
number of papers in journals and proceedings related to this method.
For a PhD study, he moved to Turkey and attended the Middle East
Technical University. His thesis was on the ductile fracture criteria (DFC)
for sheet metal and he proposed a new DFC for this type of forming
processes. He has published some journal and proceeding papers from
His current research interests include the fracture simulation with finite
element methods, XFEM, strain gradient plasticity and micro-machining
processes. They are related fields if the fracture phenomenon is
considered in micro and nano scales. He plans to advance his research
interests in the small scale metal plasticity and fracture phenomenon in
micro and nano scales.
