    Profile

    My current research interests are focused on

    MULTISCALE DEFORMATION AND FRACTURE IN MATERIALS

    AND STRUCTURES

    multi-scale modeling of gradient nanostructured materials and high entropy alloys. Applications are concerned with laser shock processed material for aeroengine and laser quenching processed rail steel.

    Research Group

    Name of Research Group:Plasticity, Fatigue and Fracture

    Description of Research Group:The research team is mainly engaged in the constitutive relationship of advanced materials, fatigue, and fracture mechanics.

    Name of Research Group:Multiscale Modeling of Material

    Description of Research Group:The research group of "multi-scale mechanics of material" has systematically studied the mechanical behavior, deformation mechanism, constitutive theory and microstructure optimization design of high strength and high toughness materials, such as high entropy alloy gradient, nanostructured materials, through multi-scale theory (strain gradient theory, dislocation theory), multi-scale simulation (crystal plastic finite element; discrete dislocation dynamics; molecular dynamics) and multi-scale experiments (macro mechanical property test; surface nanocrystallization; microscopic characterization; nanoindentation).
