Dr. Tian Tang

C5MPT Project: Stability and Interfacial Interaction Mechanisms of Asphaltenes in Oilsands Production

Full Profile

Dr. Tang's research interests interface with applied mechanics (solid mechanics, fracture, contact mechanics and adhesion, statistical mechanics) and materials science (mechanical and interfacial behavior of materials and structures at micro- to nano- scales and in biological systems). Current research areas include

  • Multi-scale modeling and simulation of nano-biomolecular hybrid materials
  • Adhesion in sub-micron structures and in biological/biomimetic systems
  • Statistical theory for the failure mechanism of compliant solids
  • Broadly: application of mechanics and computational methods to problems in materials
