Professor Yuan received his PhD in Engineering Mechanics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015 working with Professor Stelios Kyriakides at the Center for Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials. He then joined Stress Engineering Services as an Engineering Associate in Houston, Texas. Simultaneously, since June of 2015, he was appointed as a Visiting Scholar/Postdoctoral at the Center for Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Materials. Since March 2019, he became a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Tianjin University. His work has earned him several awards, including the Best Paper Award of OMAE in 2015.
Professor Yuan’s research areas include mechanics of architected structures, metamaterial design, as well as instability problems related to offshore pipeline and plastic forming. Prospective PhD and MS students, who are interested in these research areas are welcomed to contact Professor Yuan via email with a CV.
