Professor, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Carleton University, Canada
Prof. Xin Wang obtained his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, from University of Waterloo, Canada in 1997. After he worked in industry for three years, in 2000, he joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. On July 1, 2011, he was promoted to the rank of Full Professor. Dr. Wang is a member of various international professional organizations such as ASME, ASTM and serves on the ASTM-E08 committee on Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics. He has served on the organizing committee or international scientific committee for several and international conferences. He serves on the editorial board for two international scientific journals and regularly as a peer reviewer for over 10 international scientific and technical journals. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario, Canada.
Dr. Wang’s main research interest and activities are in the area of fatigue and fracture mechanics for engineering materials and structures. The research projects involve solid mechanics, finite element methods, structural integrity assessment and material characterization. Research has enabled laboratory testing to better predict the fatigue and fracture properties of actual full-scale engineering structures in aerospace, pressure vessel, pipeline and offshore industries.
