Short Bio and Research Interests: Dr. Dong Qian is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas. He obtained his BS degree in Bridge Engineering in 1994 from Tongji University in China. He came to US in 1996 and obtained M.S. degree in civil engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1998. He continued his study at Northwestern University from 1998 and received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering in 2002. Shortly after his graduation, he was hired as an assistant professor at the University of Cincinnati. In 2008, he was promoted to the rank of associate professor with tenure and served as the Director of Graduate Studies from 2010. In the Fall of 2012, he joined the mechanical engineering department at the University of Texas at Dallas as an associate professor (tenured) and was promoted to the rank of full professor in 2015.
Dr. Qian is a member of the US association for computational mechanics and ASME.
His research interests include
1. Nonlinear finite element and meshfree methods and applications to stress and failure analysis
2. Fatigue and life prediction.
3. Surface engineering, residual stress analysis. Modeling and simulation of manufacturing process (peening, forming, etc.)
4. Modeling and simulation of nanostructured materials with focus on mechanical properties and multiphysics coupling mechanisms.
5. Multiscale methods that seek to bridge the gaps in spatial or temporal scales.
