Scientific Profile

Currently Professor Zheng's research group is mainly interested in understanding, finding or inventing nano/microscale structured materials, surfaces, and devices that have novel properties in mechanics, physics, and/or biology through multidisciplinary study and cooperation via theory-computation-experiment interaction approach. Some examples are gigahertz oscillators made from multiwalled carbon nanotubes or graphite nanoflakes, supertransportations of nanostructured materials and surfaces, and the cell mechanism of tree height limit. The group is also generally interested in understanding and formulating fundamental, invariant, and/or unified mechanical properties of heterogeneous and anisotropic materials.

Research Interests

Nanomechanics, nano-devices, micro/nano-bionics; mechanics of heterogeneous materials, damage mechanics; mechanics of anisotropic behavior, theory of representations for tensors and tensor functions.
