2022 International Conference on Applied Mechanics and Engineering Structure (AMES 2022)


Chair Professor Zongjin Li, University of Macao, China

Dr Zongjin LI is Chair professor at University of Macau. He received his B.E. from Zhejiang University in 1982 and obtained both his M.S. and PhD from Northwestern University, Chicago, in 1990 and 1993, respectively. He was a fellow of American Concrete Institute, Chair of China Group of RILEM and Founding President of ACI China Chapter. As the chief scientist, he has led a China Key National Basic Research Project (973), ‘Basic study on environmentally friendly contemporary concrete’ that promoted the concrete research in China to a world-class level. He also founded the Gordon Research Conference, ‘‘Advanced Materials for Sustainable Infrastructure Development’ in 2014.

He is pioneer in noncontact resistivity/impedance measurement for cement-based materials and lead the research activities in this area for about 20 years. He also developed cement-based piezoelectric and opened a new direction for civil engineering. The methodology he developed to utilizing the in situ polymerization of monomer during cement hydration process has shown a strong effect in enhancing flexural strength of cement-based composite. He has published 5 technical books, in which ‘Advanced Concrete Technology’ published by John Wiley has been collected by many national libraries and major university libraries  and used by many universities as text or reference books for civil engineering. He has also published more than 400 technical papers with a Google Scholar citation of 21358 and H-index of 82. He has also been awarded eight US and twenty Chinese patents. Three of his patents have been developed into commercial products.  

He received the Arthur R. Anderson Medal from American Concrete Institute in 2017 and Distinguished Visiting Fellowship Award from British Royal Academy of Engineering in 2014.

Professor Chuang Feng, Nanjing Tech University, China

Prof Chuang Feng received his bachelor degree in Civil Engineering from Chang’an University in 2004 and Master degree in solid mechanics from University of Science and Technology Beijing in 2007. After obtaining PhD degree in Mechanical and Materials Engineering from the University of Western Ontario (Cananda) in 2014. Professor Feng started to work as research fellow at RMIT University from 2015 till 2019 and then gained professorship position in Civil Engineering at Nanjing Tech University.

Professor Feng’s research interests are mainly focused on smart materials and structures. He has published more than 30 SCI journal papers, which received more than 1700 google scholar citations with h-index being 21. Among the published papers, three are ESI highly cited and one was selected as IOPselect due to its “novelty, significant and potential impact on future research”. As PI, Professor Feng was granted research funding of nearly 6 million RMB. Also he received several prestigious awards and honors, including Endearvour Research Fellowship from Department of Education of Australia, Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DERA) from Australian Research Council, Best Paper Award from Australian Composite Structure Society, JSPS Research Fellowship, Innovative and Entrepreneurial Talents of Jiangsu Province, Award for Oversea Outstanding Self-financed Graduates and Academic Achievement Scholarship and Western Graduate Thesis Research Funding Award from the University of Western Ontario.
