1:00 pm - 2:00 pm The Pursuit and Discovery of Vehicle Electrification Markets
using Lithium-ion and/or Fuel Cell Powertrains - 1 PDH
by Mark Mathias, PHD
Adjunct Professor Chemical Engineering Department, University of Rochester
It is now clear that we are moving towards less-petroleum-based and lower-carbon-footprint transportation technologies. Approximately 10% of the passenger vehicles currently sold in the world now have plugs, and this percentage is growing steadily. This trend is due in large part to the fact that Li-ion battery prices have dropped much faster than anyone predicted even five years ago. Remarkably, large (Class 8) truck electrification is now being seriously pursued for the first time. In this talk, we will consider the status and trajectory of Li-ion battery and fuel cell technology and their relationship to various emerging electric vehicle markets. Of course, outcomes will depend on the development of charging/fueling infrastructures, a topic whose status, trajectory, and technology challenges we will also consider.
Mark Mathias is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Rochester and an Electrochemical System Consultant. Mark received a BS in 1982 in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech, a PhD in Chemical Engineering in 1987 from the University of Wisconsin, and then spent two years as a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland. He joined Mobil Research and Development Corporation in 1989 and moved to General Motors in 1998. Addition details on the website.

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer for Heavy Trucks - 1 PDH
by John E. Haddock, PhD, PE
Professor of Civil Engineering and Director, Local Technical Assistance Program, Lyles School of Civil Engineering, Purdue University
Overview of current work being done by the National Science Engineering Research Center to develop dynamic wireless power transfer for heavy trucks. This will provide learners with an overview understanding of dynamic wireless power transfer.
John E. Haddock is a registered professional engineer and a professor of civil engineering at Purdue University, where he also serves at the director of the Indiana Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP), a university center designed to help local government transportation agencies. He holds a BS in physics and an MS in civil engineering from Purdue University, as well as a PhD in civil engineering from Auburn University. Prior to joining the Purdue faculty, Dr. Haddock worked in private industry as a pavement engineer, as a senior research associate for the National Center for Asphalt Technology, as a research engineer for the Indiana Department of Transportation, and as a district engineer for the Asphalt Institute. During his 30-year career he has worked in research, equipment and test method development, and criteria and specification writing. He has been responsible for asphalt mixture design production, forensic pavement investigations, and pavement design and analysis. Dr. Haddock is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, ASTM International, the International Society for Asphalt Pavements, and the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists. He is the co-editor-in-chief of the ASTM International journal, Advances in Civil Engineering Materials.
