Mr Jun Shen

Jun Shen is a Visiting Researcher in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of Strathclyde with particular interest in pressure vessel design by analysis in creep regime. He earned BSc and MEng in Chemical Process Equipment from Beijing University of Chemical Technology in 2003 and 2006, respectively, and now is a Ph.D candidate in solid mechanics from Tsinghua University. More than 40 papers have been published in national journals and conferences. And he has recently published his second book with Tsinghua University Press.

Dr Xiaohui Chen

Xiaohui Chen is an Academic Visiting in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of Strathclyde with particular interest in structural integrity and cyclic plasticity constitutive model of structures. She earned BSc and MEng in Chemical Process Equipment from Hebei University of Technology in 2007 and 2010, respectively, and Ph.D in Chemical Process Equipment from Tianjin University in 2013. Her main area of research is cyclic plastic behaviour and integrity of pressure vessel and piping, focusing on material and structure numerical modelling. During this Ph.D and the present research, she investigated the effects of temperature, defect size and constitutive model on the ratcheting behaviour and ratchet limit of pressurized pipe. She also has other areas of interest such as high-temperature creep and fatigue for structures and components.
