Bo Yang, Ph.D.
Ph.D. University of Houston, 1998
M.S. University of Houston, 1996
B.S. University of Science and Technology of China, 1992
Areas of Expertise: Micro/Nanomechanics of Defects (e.g., point defects, dislocations and kinks in nanolayered materials); Fracture, Fatigue and Impact Mechanics of Composite Materials; Chemomechanics of Advanced Energy Storage Materials (e.g., involved in lithium ion batteries and hydrogen storage); Biomechanics of Cells and Tissues; Computational Methods (finite elements, Green's functions/boundary elements, molecular dynamics and multiscale modeling).
Background: After earning his Ph.D. degree, Professor Yang has worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Air Force Institute of Technology in Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio for a year, as a senior engineer in a consulting company in Raleigh, North Carolina for two years, and as a guest researcher in the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado for a year. He joined the University of Texas-Arlington after teaching at the Florida Institute of Technology as Assistant and Associate Professors for eight years. He has been deeply involved in research in experimental and computational fracture mechanics, micro- and nano-mechanics of defects, chemomechanics in advanced energy storage materials, Green's function-based mesh-reduction computational methods including multiscale modeling from atomistic to continuum scales, etc.. His research has been sponsored by NSF, ARL, NIST, AFIT, FSEC, and industry. He has published over 40 technical journal articles and over 30 conference proceeding papers and abstracts. His teaching interest falls in the category of Solid Mechanics in general. He serves on the Editorial Board of International Journal of Computers, Materials and Continua. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Materials Research Society. He has served as a peer reviewer for over 30 technical journals. He has been actively participating in advisory committee and symposium organization for the International Conferences in Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences (ICCES 2007-2012) and the World Congress of Nonlinear Analysts (WCNA 2008). His current research focus is on chemomechanics in advanced energy storage materials, cell/tissue mechanics, and metamaterials.
