Research Topics:
Dr. Sun’s research interests are focused on mechanical properties of materials in relation to microstructural and environmental parameters. The work includes characterization of tensile and fatigue properties, analysis of damage and fracture mechanisms, as well as numerical modelling and simulation with finite element method. Some subjects and techniques involved in his research work are as follows:
- Time-dependent grain boundary embrittlement of copper alloys
- Multiscale modelling of hot tearing during solidification of metals
- Fatigue crack growth affected by gaseous hydrogen
- Cohesive zone method based thermo-mechanical fatigue model
- Characterization and multiscale modelling of materials processed by SMAT (Surface Mechanical Attrition Treatment)
