Recent advances in Fluids & Thermal Engineering research at University of Nottingham
主讲人 : Prof. Yuying Yan
The lecture will give an overview of Professor Yuying Yan’s research in fluids & thermal engineering, in particular the recent advances in nature inspired study of heat transfer and thermal management.
Yuying Yan is Professor (Chair) of Thermofluids Engineering at the University of Nottingham (UK). In Faculty of Engineering, he serves as the Head of Fluids & Thermal Engineering Research Group, which consists of 25 academics members and more than 80 PhDs and Postdocs. He has more than 30 years’ experience in multiphase flow, heat transfer, applied thermodynamics, and cross-disciplinary subject of biomimetics, in terms of nature-inspired technology for flow and heat transfer. He was the Chairman of the first International
Symposium of Biomimetic Functional Surfaces and Fluids (BFSF) in 2009 and as the coordinator created the UK-China international joint laboratory of BFSF in 2009. He is also the director of Industrial Joint Laboratory of Thermal Management & Heat Transfer for Low Carbon
Vehicles at University of Nottingham. His research has been sponsored by EPSRC, Royal Society, Royal Academy of Engineering, Innovative UK, APC, and European Commission, as well many industrial companies including Siemens, etc. His recent 5 years research portfolio is more than £7 million. He is Fellow and Deputy General Secretary of International Society of Bionic Engineering; he is the UK Heat Transfer Committee member (2018 - ) and member of UK EPSRC Peer Review College and served in grant panels (2005 - ), and member of European Research Council (ERC)’s Advanced Research Grant Panel (2014-2017). He is Editorial Board member of Scientific Reports (Nature Publishing Group), found member of Journal of Bionic Engineering editorial board; and International Journal of Thermal Sciences & Engineering Progress. He also holds a of Li Dak Sum Chair Professor in Thermofluids Engineering at University of Nottingham China campus; China Ministry of Education awarded Yangtze River Scholar Guest Chair Professor, Tang-Ao-Qing Guest Chair Professor at Jilin University. Prof. Yan has published over 170 articles in refereed journals, 4 books chapters, given more than 15 plenary/keynote at international conferences, and obtained 9 innovation patents. He as Conference Chairman or co-chair has organised a few successful international Conferences, such as ICBE2010, ICBE2016, ISHT2014, ISHT&HPC2016, and 3rdISFTE2017.
Education: January 1978- January 1982, Jilin University of Technology (BSc), 1983-1986, Shanghai Institute of Mechanical Engineering (MSc), 1992-1996 City University of London (PhD).
