PhD Research Student
The BE degree was acquired at Beijing University of Chemical Technology in Polymer Science and Engineering in 2018. MSc degree was attained from Loughborough University in Polymer Science and Engineering in 2019. Now the PhD study is in process in Mechanical and Manufracturing Engineering in Loughborough University. The PhD research is primarily about 3D printing of fibre reinforced polymer composites.
PhD Thesis Title: Fibre Reinforced 3D Printing
The current research focuses on material extrusion additive manufacturing of short carbon fibre reinforced polymer composites in terms of fibre distribution and orientation with changing printing parameters. The fibre behaviours can be related to the mechanical properties and fracture mechanism, which would be instructional for processing condition selection and material selection in 3D printing.
