Summary Sentence: University of Connecticut Professor to Present at March 28 Manufacturing Luncheon at GTMI

Full Summary: Professor Jiong Tang from the University of Connecticut will provide information on his research on advanced materials and structures on March 28 from 12 to 1 p.m. in Room 114 of the GTMI building. Another excellent installment in the GTMI Manufacturing Lunch Seminar Series.

About Jiong Tang and his lab

Dr. Tang received his B.S. and M.S. in Applied Mechanics from Fudan University, China, in 1989 and 1992, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State in 2001. From 1992 to 1995 he served as Lecturer at Fudan University in Applied Mechanics. Prior to joining UConn, Dr. Tang was a staff engineer at GE Corporate Research Center, Niskayuna, New York.

Dr. Tang joined the University of Connecticut's Mechanical Engineering Department in 2002. His current research interests are structural dynamics and system dynamics, active and passive structural controls, structural health monitoring/diagnosis, smart materials and mechatronics, and large-scale analysis of complex dynamic systems. His research projects are interdisciplinary, encompassing multi-physics modeling and analysis, electro-mechanical integration, and sensing/actuation development and signal processing. Dr. Tang's research has been supported by federal agencies such as NSF and also by industries. While fundamental studies are being pursued in his lab to explore paradigm change in the structure and system dynamics area, research is also being carried out to implement the new findings to practical platforms such as aero-engines and fuel cells.

Dr. Tang directs the UConn Structure and System Dynamics Laboratory. The goal of the lab is to develop novel methods and devices for the better, safer, and more sustainable service of various systems. Research at the lab focuses on:

  • Structural dynamics
  • System dynamics and controls
  • Smart materials and smart structures
  • Sensing, signal processing, and monitoring
  • Vibration damping
  • Mechatronics and MEMS
  • Energy and power systems
