Yongming Liu

Professor, Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

Welcome to my website!!! I am a professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Arizona State University. Hope you can find some fun here.
My current research interest includes: prognostics and diagnostics, fatigue and fracture of engineering materials and structures, probabilistic computational mechanics, risk assessment and management, multi-physics damage modeling and structural durability, multi-scale uncertainty quantification and propagation, imaging-based experimental testing.
Please feel free to contact me, especially if you are interested in my previous work about fatigue, fracture, numerical models and probabilistic methods. However, if you are fatigued by too much work load, I suggest that you should have a vacation or go to see a doctor.
