Guoliang Huang Professor


Guoliang Huang is a professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. Dr. Huang works in the broad area of Solid Mechanics and Structures, in particular the new frontiers of structural dynamics, aerodynamics, and dynamical behaviors of composite materials, both man-made and formed naturally, and understanding relationship between microstructures and material properties (structure and material dynamics, and elastic and acoustic wave characterization). His research has been focusing on new multi-physical composite materials addressing challenges in designing of passive and active elastic/acoustic/seismic metamaterials for efficient vibration/acoustic/earthquake wave attenuation, dynamic control, structural health monitoring, energy harvesting, bio-sensing and others.

Dr. Huang has published around 80 first class international journal papers in those fields, one book, three chapters in book, and 85 international conference publications. His research projects are funded by NSF, ONR, NASA, ARPA-E, AFOSR and major industries. He gave many plenary/keynote talks in many international and national conferences and served as organizing committee members. He serves as Associate Editor of Wave Motion.
