AU engineering professor to host signing for his textbook on materials

Jinghong Fan, professor of mechanical engineering in the Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University, will conduct a book-signing of his textbook, “Multiscale Analysis of Deformation and Failure of Materials,” Tuesday, Feb. 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the AU book store, Powell Campus Center.

A member of the AU faculty since 2000, Fan completed his master’s and Ph.D. degrees in applied mechanics in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Cincinnati. He received his baccalaureate degree in design and manufacturing from the Department of Naval Architecture, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and another degree in applied mathematics from Shanghai Fu Dun University.

Prior to coming to Alfred, Fan had been a senior research assistant at Georgia Tech, and had taught at the University of Tennessee, the University of Cincinnati, and Chongqing University.

Fan’s research interests include composite and smart materials, micro/macro scale analysis of the mechanics of materials, lightweight and cost-effective alloys, and fracture and damage mechanics.
