Wenbin Yu
Composites Virtual Factory HUB Director


Bio


Dr. Wenbin Yu is a Professor in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University. He also serves as the Director for Composites Virtual Factory HUB (cvfHUB) and as the Associate Director for Composites Design and Manufacturing HUB (cdmHUB), and the CTO for AnalySwift LLC. His expertise is in micromechanics and structural mechanics with applications to composite/smart materials. He has developed seven computer codes which are being used in government labs, universities, research institutes and companies. His research has been funded by both federal agencies and private industry. He has discovered the Mechanics of Structure Genome (MSG) which provides a unified approach for modeling of advanced materials and structures. MSG is implemented in SwiftComp, a general-purpose multiscale constitutive modeling code recently commercialized by Purdue Research Foundation. He is an ASME Fellow and AIAA Associate Fellow.
