|Asso Prof Lu Guoxing is currently in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering since 2006. He received his Bachelor degree in Automotive Engineering from Jilin University, China, Master degree from Cranfield University and PhD from Cambridge University (supervisor: Prof CR Calladine, FRS, FREng). He worked as a post-doctoral fellow at Cambridge University, and as a faculty at NTU and Swinburne University, Melbourne. His research interests include energy absorption of materials and structures, impact mechancs, material properties at high strain rates and most recently cell mechanics. He has done significant research work in his research areas and published one monograph and over 130 top quality international conference and journal papers. He has been often invited as a member or referee and reviewer for a number of premier conferences and journals. He is a member of editorial board of International Journal of Impact Engineering.|
|Prof Lu's primary research interest is fundamentals in impact and crashworthiness of structures and materials, which can be applied to design of vehicle structures such as automobiles and aircraft. He has conducted extensive in-depth studies of crashing of thin-walled structures, ductile tearing behaviour of metals, mechanical properties of novel cellular materials such as honeycombs and aluminium foams. His recent interests are the behaviour of novel sandwich panels subject to impact and blast loadings, buckling of nanotubes and mechanics of cells.|
