Yancheng ZHANG
Chargé de Recherche MINES ParisTech

Dr. Yancheng Zhang obtained his bachelor and master degrees in mechanical engineering from Northeastern University of China in 2005 and 2008.

He received his doctoral degree in mechanical engineering from INSA Lyon (LaMCoS) in September 2011, where he worked with Prof. Daniel Nelias and Prof. Tarek Mabrouki on modeling of cutting operation of Titanium alloys.

After PhD thesis, He joined the computational Mechanics Group of Prof. Timon Rabczuk of Bauhaus University (Weimar, Germany), where he worked on molecular dynamics modeling of polymer based nanocomposites, supported by “Young European MSE (Materials Science and Engineering) Scientists”.

In September 2013, he came back to LaMCoS working on model reduction of welding process with Prof. Alian Combescure.

In October 2015, he started as assistant professor at CEMEF, MINES ParisTech. His researches focus on numerical modeling of additive manufacturing and characterization of anisotropic constitutive model at high temperature.

Since October 2018, he has been a permanent staff of Mines ParisTech. He has 22 publications in peer review journals (17 articles as the first author, 1 cover page) on numerical modelling on machining, additive manufacturing and nanocomposites, model reduction in the Rank A journals such as Comput. Methods. Appl. Mech. Eng., Int. J. Numer. Meth. Eng., Finite Elem. Anal. Des., J. Mater. Process. Technol. and Compos. Struct.
