Jiahao Cheng

R&D Associate Staff

Jiahao Cheng is an R&D associate staff in the Deposition Science & Technology Group in the Manufacturing Science Division. He received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 2016 in computational mechanics. His research mainly focuses on developing material constitutive models and finite element simulations for the deformation and failure behavior in metallic materials at the meso- and microstructure scale. Some of his past and current research work includes modeling ductility and fracture, twinning, fatigue, and creep in various material systems, such as magnesium alloys, titanium alloys, nickel-based superalloys, aluminum alloys, and composites.
