Master of Mechanical Engineering Student Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) Study Exchange with Ehime University, Japan

The Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) collaborated with Ehime University from Japan to collaborate in student exchange where on this occasion UGM students left for the land of cherry blossoms on October 23 – November 19, 2019. Three master students of Mechanical Engineering DTMI FT UGM namely Wiliandi Saputro (Wili), Fatkhurrohman (Fatkhur) and M. Aisya Fatima Sampurno (Aisya) represented the Mechanical Engineering study program to study for one month there. After arriving in Japan, Wili and Fatkhur were placed in the Department of Mechanical Engineering or Kikai Koogaku in Japanese, and Aisya herself was placed in Materials and Science Engineering (Kinoozairyoo Koogaku).

Wili had the opportunity to study and conduct research on “Preparation of composite materials of Na-1 Zeolite for Cs Decontamination”, namely studying the synthesis of zeolite for decontamination of soil contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear explosion. Research conducted by Fatkhur focused on internal fracture (damage) and crack propagation of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP), wherein the manufacture of CFRP lamina a sensor is placed in the form of FBG (fiber bragg grating) which is applied to the fuselage. Aisya herself is in a different department, focusing on synthesizing and characterizing silicon carbide using the microwave heating method for various applications in machinery such as turbine engines, boilers, and other refractory applications.

Fatkhur explained that this exchange activity was not only focused on research, but was also filled with non-academic learning such as the Matsuyama city tour, visiting the historical place of Matsuyama Castle, and industrial visits to agricultural machinery companies. “One month is short, but this short time can be maximized to support all the services there, we are facilitated with a library card so that we can freely study and borrow books, and a student card is also facilitated so that we can use the facilities to the fullest. Not only that, but we also use our days off to study non-academic things with Japanese friends, or to visits other Indonesian students to exchange ideas and experiences. I learned a lot there,” said Aisya, Tuesday (17/12/2019). Wili also added that the students welcomed him warmly and enthusiastically, “They cooked special meals for us, and prepared all the events perfectly, we felt like we are welcomed as a new family even though we haven’t known them for long”. Wili, Fatkhur and Aisya hope that their fellow master students of Mechanical Engineering DTMI FT UGM can take part in this activity in the following years. This activity is very useful to learn about the latest technology in a developed country and to research and develop it in Indonesia in an effort to increase scientific progress, develop the potential to continue doctoral studies, introduce Indonesian culture in the Culture Sharing Program, as well as to establish good relations and cooperation in the field of research with universities that already advanced.

New research project to tackle emergency natural disaster response problems


A new research project aims to tackle problems and improve natural disaster emergency preparedness and response in countries badly affected by earthquakes, flooding, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis.


The RESilient Emergency Preparedness for Natural Disaster Response through Operational Research (RESPOND-OR) project will look at ways of improving existing systems, identify current challenges, and develop methods to overcome them.


Researchers from Centre for Transport and Logistics Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) will lead the work, in conjunction with a multinational, interdisciplinary research team from Indonesia and Sudan, including researchers from Universitas Indonesia, Universitas Gadjah Mada and University of Khartoum.


The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has provided more than half-a-million pounds from the Global Challenges Research Fund for the £600,000 two-year project, which will start in October.


RESPOND-OR will investigate the issues relating to emergency response management of large-scale natural disasters in Indonesia and Sudan. The focus will be on optimising disaster preparedness and response, looking across strategic, tactical and operations decisions, developing fast and efficient algorithms that account for the fast response time needed and the need to deal with data from across many different organisations.


Principal Investigator Konstantinos Zografos, Director of CENTRAL and Distinguished Professor of Management Science in LUMS, said: “Indonesia and Sudan are among the countries affected by the economic and societal consequences of natural disasters. Indonesia is a country where one natural disaster can trigger another – an earthquake leading to a tsunami, for instance – while Sudan suffers from flooding which can cause a health emergency that needs simultaneous consideration.


“The optimisation of disaster preparedness and response interventions provides great potential to decrease the magnitude of the negative impacts of disasters, with significant economic and societal benefits for the affected communities. Our research is motivated by this desire, and the mathematical models and solution methods will be transferable to similar problems in other developing and developed countries.”


Challenges already identified include building a system for allocating disaster response resources in the event of combined natural disasters; integrating systems from different bodies and organisations; distributing disaster relief in the presence of civil disobedience and social conflict; evacuation of affected populations; and ensuring fairness into preparedness and response decisions.


Professor Zografos, who will work alongside Professor Juliana Sutanto, Professor Kevin Glazebrook, and Dr Ahmed Kheiri on the project at LUMS, added: “There is an urgent need to address the identified challenges. The RESPOND-OR project will develop the next generation of cutting-edge mathematical models and solution algorithms which will incorporate real world complexities and the requirements of all the stakeholders.


“This will have a significant economic and social impact by enabling more efficient and effective allocation and use of the available disaster preparedness and response resources in communities across disaster-prone areas.”


The research team will be working with key stakeholders representing disaster management organisations in both Sudan and Indonesia: Indonesia’s National Disaster Management Authority (BNPB); Disaster Management Agency of the Yogyakarta Special Region (BPBD DIY); Humanitarian Forum Indonesia (HFI); RedR Indonesia; and Nile Basin Institute (NBI). The aim is to develop a sustainable international partnership between academics and those organisations – including governments.


Professors Zografos and Sutanto, together with fellow LUMS Professor Adam Letchford, will also work with the University of Kent and the University of Southampton on a parallel capacity building project, CREST-OR), again funded by the EPSRC.




Notes for Editors:


The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) has provided £515,923 in funding for the RESPOND-OR project, covering the period from October 2019 to September 2021.
