Prof. Mohamed El Mansori
Mohamed EL MANSORI is a Professor at the Department of Mechanical, Materials Science and Manufacturing Engineering, Arts et Métiers ParisTech (France) where he leads the Mechanics, Surfaces and Material Processing Laboratory (MSMP-EA-7350)/Engineering. He is appointed as TEES Research Professor at TAMU (USA). He is the Director Program of TEES-TAMU-ENSAM joint research cluster. He served as Deputy General Director in Charge of Research & Innovation at the Arts et Métiers ParisTech, France. He also chaired the Mechanical Engineering and Manufacturing Research Group (LMPF-EA4106) at the Châlons-enChampagne campus. He was a founder and head of project of the creation of the MSMP laboratory, which is a multi-campus laboratory of the same institution including at Aix-en-Provence, Châlons-enChampagne and Lille.
He received B.Sc degree in Physics from the University of Hassan II (Casablanca, Morocco:1993), and Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering from the Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine (Nancy, France:1997) followed by employment as a post-doctoral researcher at the Center for Advanced Friction Studies of the Southern Illinois University, USA. He, then, joined the research group at the ERMES (Nancy, France) for five years to conduct research on “the tribological behavior of engineering materials, especially under the influence of electro-magnetic environment”. His current research interests in ParisTech include the interface of thermo-mechanic characteristics of both metallic and composite materials and physics behind their tribological and manufacturing performance. The research activities carried out in the last decade were interdisciplinary by their very nature. They have been engulfed to the issues concerning the tribological characteristics of engineering systems and multiscale advanced and smart manufacturing processes. These activities have led to the formation of a new research team which conceived and developed the concept of multi-scale process signature in conjunction with a new tribo-energetic approach for the fundamental understanding of smart and sustainable manufacturing processes involving lightweight synthetic and/or natural reinforced composite materials, energy-efficient manufacturing processes, advanced tribological studies and new process development for improved product performance and sustainability, etc. The main interest of this approach was, in its capability, to "bridge the gap" between the traditional approaches of academia and the industrial requirements. These resulted in a strong publication record of more than 160 papers in JCR referenced international journals and more than 200 international and national conference proceedings. He has taught many short courses on tribology in multiscale manufacturing processes. Several invitations to technical/scientific meetings and international conferences testify his strong international exposure.
