Haofeng Chen Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK
Professor Haofeng Chen is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, UK. He has also been appointed or awarded as a Visiting Professor to the East China University of Science and Technology, the Royal Academy of Engineering Senior Research Fellow, Associate Editor of the ASME Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology, Fellow of The Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, ASME Member and Chartered Engineer. He earned two Bachelor degrees in engineering mechanics and economic management from Tsinghua University in 1994, and his MEng and PhD in solid mechanics from Tsinghua University in 1995 and 1998, respectively. He was then a research fellow in the School of Mechanical and Production Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, and subsequently a research fellow in the Department of Engineering at the University of Leicester from 1998 to 2006.
Current research interests centre on the development of novel numerical methods on structural integrity and life assessment of mechanical structures subjected to cyclic thermal and mechanical loads. These include mathematical and numerical modelling for a wide range of cyclic material responses and failure mechanisms including shakedown, ratchetting, fatigue and high temperature creep, and also the development of the Linear Matching Methods for structural integrity assessment.
