“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 an assistant professor in the research group Building Materials in the Department of the Built Environment 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 durability of building materials under different exposure environment; advanced building materials with air purifying, self-cleaning, or (super)hydrophobic properties or (ultra)high performance; and sustainability concerning alternative binders design like alkali-activated binder and application of industrial by-products or waste materials. 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 (China), and earned his bachelor’s degree in 2003 and master’s degree in 2006. His Master’s thesis was on materials design of high performance pre-stressed concrete structure. He then worked as researcher in WHUT until December 2007, where he worked on structural analysis and health monitoring. He started his PhD research at University of Twente in January 2008, and moved to Eindhoven University of Technology in September 2009 following his supervisor professor H.J.H. Brouwers. He obtained his PhD degree in May 2012, with the research topic of designing advanced calcium sulfate-based building materials for improved indoor air quality. From January 2012 to January 2014, he was post-doctoral researcher at TU/e. In January 2014 he was appointed Assistant Professor in the group Building Materials at TU/e and received tenure in December 2016. He has authored 3 book chapters, 75 scientific journal papers and about 70 international conference papers. He is editor of ISI journal Advances in Civil Engineering, and reviewer of over 30 leading journals.
