Division III focuses on the mechanical properties,  reliability and integrity of materials, components and  structures in service environments,such as  corrosive environment, high temperature environment and  multi-field coupling environment in petrochemical engineering , marineand engineering, traffic engineering and  power industries.
Research Areas
1.Plastic deformation, fatigue and fracture of metallic materials
2.Mechanical property evaluation for structural materials in corrosive environments
3.Hydrogen embrittlement and stress corrosion cracking of high strength steels
4.Mechanical behavior and integrity of  engineering structures
5.Failure analyses of materials and components in industrial fields
6.Application of synchrotron radiation in materials failure investigation
7.Service performance assessmentof large scale and complex structures based on experiments  and digital simulation
Research Highlights
1.Failure analyses and service performance assessment of key components in rail transit system.



Safety evaluation of the wheels with corrosion pitting

2.Mechanism of hydrogen embrittlement in metals. blister was proposed. Atomic hydrogen can induce superabundant vacancies.



Proposed model of blister formation induced by atomic hydrogen and superabundant vacancies

3.Materials damage evolution investigation based on Synchrotron radiation, SEM and TEM.


4.The fatigue and fracture mechanism of metallic materialsevolution processes from shear banding to were directly investigated by quasi-in situ cyclic compression-compression.
