CAMP Professor Yongming Liu Models Probabilistic Multi-Scale Fatigue Damage of Metals

Professor Yongming Liu, in Clarkson's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is investigating the fatigue damage prognosis of materials and structures. This topic is still a challenging problem despite tremendous progress made during the past several decades. Fatigue damage accumulation is a multi-scale phenomenon, which involves very different spatial and temporal scales. In addition, huge uncertainties are associated with the fatigue damage accumulation. The development of a general methodology for probabilistic multi-scale fatigue damage modeling would significantly enhance the nation's aviation safety, the infrastructure risk assessment and the rulemaking of governmental authorities. Professor Liu is currently leading several projects related to probabilistic fatigue damage prognosis of materials and structures. These projects focus on the different metallic material systems and different structural applications, which are funded by various governmental agencies, such as the NASA Ames Research Center, the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Science Foundation, and the NAVY-NAVAIR (through GEM, Inc.).
