RESEARCH INTEREST

  • Computational Concrete Mechanics (CCM), including:
    • Thermodynamically consistent constitutive modeling: damage mechanics, microplane and smeared crack model;
    • Developing nonlocal, gradient-enhanced and discontinuous model;
    • Simulations of crack propagation and mixed mode failure;
    • Nonlinear analysis of structures, etc.
  • Others: 
    • Computational solids mechanics and finite element method;
    • Applications of computer aided engineering (CAE) softwares, etc.

EDUCATION BACKGROUND

Period: April 2001 — June 2004

  • Qualification: Ph.D. in Structural Engineering (November, 2004)
  • Affiliation: Tongji University, Shanghai, China
  • Dissertation: Damage energy release rate-based elastoplastic damage constitutive model for concrete and its applications to nonlinear analysis of structures (in Chinese, supervised by Prof. J. Li, Tongji University, Shanghai, China). Summary download
  • mini-Abstract: In this dissertation an energy-based elastoplastic damage model which is capable of considering the structural damping in the material scale, was proposed for concrete, its numerical algorithm of implicit integration was developed, and after sufficiently verified the proposed model was applied to the concrete structures under static and dynamic loadings.

Period: September 1998 — March 2001

  • Qualification: Master degree in Structural Engineering (March, 2001)
  • Affiliation: Tongji University, Shanghai, China
  • Dissertation: Experimental and theoretical research on shear performances of special-shaped columns subjected to cyclic loading (in Chinese, supervised by Prof. J. Li, Tongji University, Shanghai, China)
  • mini-Abstract: In this dissertation six special-shaped reinforce concrete columns were experimentally tested under cyclic loadings to evaluate their shear responses and seismic performances. The specimens were
    analyzed by employing the softening truss theory, the parameter analysis then carried on, and the empirical formulation which can be used in the designs, was finally presented. 

Period: September 1994 — July 1998

  • Qualification: Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering (July, 1998)
  • Affiliation: Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China
  • Project: The architectural and structural designs of a school building (in Chinese, supervised by Assoc. Prof. Zhongxian Zhang, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China)
  • mini-Abstract: In this project, the architectural and structural designs of a school building were considered, where the internal forces were calculated, the reinforced concrete columns, beams and slabs were designed, and the concerned drawings were plotted.
