Fan Meng, Ph.D.
Materials Design Engineer
Ph.D. Materials Science and Engineering, Northwestern University, 2019
B.S. Materials Science and Engineering, Harbin Institute of Technology, 2014
Current Role at QuesTek
Fan Meng specializes in CALPHAD-based computational materials design. He is responsible for developing and implementing predictive thermodynamic, kinetic and mechanistic models for materials design projects.
Background and Specialization
Before joining QuesTek in 2020, Fan Meng completed his Ph.D. at Northwestern University on high performance titanium alloy design by transferring knowledge (Transformation Induced Plasticity, TRIP effect) from steel to titanium-base system. The work involved both experimental investigation on key process-microstructure-property relationships and computational model integration for new TRIP titanium alloy design. His Ph.D. dissertation is titled “Near-alpha TRIP Titanium Alloy Design”
