Steven Liang

Dr. Liang's research interests focus on precision manufacturing processes in the context of modeling, monitoring, control, and optimization. Specifically, his work has been devoted to physics-based analysis and predictive modeling of metal machining and additive manufacturing, with emphasis on materials-driven processing. It addresses the materials microstructural response to process-induced thermal-mechanical strain, stress, and heat distributions germane to part properties and performance, thus rendering a deeper insight into the manufacturing process physics as well as a scientific foundation to support process planning and optimization for effectiveness and productivity.

In the field of precision machining, Dr. Liang’s research has centered on predictive modeling of shear straining, thermal kinematics, and material constitutives to apprehend the coupling of thermal and mechanical loadings and the related materials behavior evolutions. The study has shed lights on the effects of machining and grinding parameters, tool geometries, and lubrication condition on the dynamics of velocity, deformation, stress, and temperature profiles. It has examined the microstructural aspects of recrystallization, grain growth, texture variation, and phase field change in machining, thus offering a better understanding of the fundamental mechanisms that govern the machined part performance of tolerance, strength, modulus, hardness, and endurance, in addition to process effectiveness attributes of machinability, tool efficiency, and environmental compatibility.
