Prof Yinghui Tian
Yinghui Tian is a Professor at the Department of Infrastructure Engineering, the University of Melbourne. His research background is offshore Geotechnics.
Prior to his appointment at Melbourne, he had a ~12 year research experience at the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems (COFS), the University of Western Australia.
He is currently an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellow and are the first Chief Investigator of two ARC Discovery Projects. He is passionate in fundamental soil mechanics and his research work is set to provide reliable and economic foundation solutions for offshore engineering developments. His current research projects include (1) offshore mooring and anchoring system development, (2) offshore pipeline integrity and stability study, (3) large deformation modelling and constitutive model development, (4) piling engineering and offshore renewable foundations, and (5) problematic carbonate soil behaviour modelling.
