“Realizing a sustainable and durable built environment requires the proper understanding of materials properties to structural behavior, concerning ecology, economy and environment.”

Research profile

Qingliang Yu is full professor at Wuhan University and holds a part-time associate professor appointment at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research interests primarily concern cement-bound materials, from materials to structural behavior understanding, covering micro-, meso- and macro-level. His current research topics include functional building materials with air purifying, self-cleaning, or (ultra)high performance, concerning sustainability including alternative binders design like alkali-activated binder and application of industrial by-products or waste materials and durability under different exposure environment. His research follows the complete chain of knowledge from materials at molecular level to structural element, applying both experimental and modelling approaches. The current portfolio is well supported by his unique educational background from Civil Engineering to Materials Science.

Academic background

Qingliang Yu studied Civil Engineering at Wuhan University of Technology, and earned his Bachelor’s degree in 2003 and Master’s degree in 2006. He obtained his PhD degree in 2012 at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) under the supervision of Prof. dr. ir. H.J.H. Brouwers. He has been first an assistant professor and then associate prosessor at TU/e. Currently he is a full professor at Wuhan University and holds a part-time associate professor appoinment at TU/e. He has authored 3 book chapters, 92 scientific journal papers and about 80 international conference papers. He is editor of journal Construction and Building Materials, and reviewer of over 30 leading journals and a number of research funding organizations.
