Curriculum Vitae
Welcome to the website of Dr. Huiming Yin’s group! The goal of this research group is to improve the sustainability of civil infrastructure through discovery, design, and development of advanced materials, structures and systems for energy, environmental, and economic benefits. My research focuses on modern structural materials and designs for energy efficient infrastructure. As the usage of materials and energy in civil infrastructure surpasses what mother-nature can provide, my research goal is to transform our civil infrastructure system into a new generation with reduced consumption of earth’s resources, minimized output of the waste and pollution, and high energy yield. As a step toward this goal, I have established the Sustainable Engineering and Materials Laboratory in the Carleton Laboratory, developed research approaches to characterize, simulate and analyze multi-physical material behavior at macro-, micro-, and nano- scales, and participated in interdisciplinary research projects covering mechanics, materials, structures, green technologies, and nondestructive testing.
