Professor Yang received a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University at West Lafayette, IN, USA as well as M.S. and B.S. degrees from Hanyang University in Korea.
Before joining OSU in 2008, he acquired 11 years of industrial experience with ArvinMeritor technical center, IBM Korea, and KIA Motors R&D Center. Much of his work focused on vehicle structure design/optimization, vehicle NVH test and development, CAD/CAM/CAE, and engineering consulting on design methodologies. Designing new vehicle structures, he registered many patents and utility model patents in the USA, Europe, Japan, and Korea. He also received an “Innovation and Achievement Award” from ArvinMeritor, Inc., a "Best Paper Award" from the International Symposium on Advanced Material and Mechanical Application, an "Outstanding Presenter Award" from the International Symposium on Green Manufacturing and Applications.
He has performed research and published in the areas of mechanical system analysis and design, noise and vibration, experimental sensitivity analysis, structural dynamics/health monitoring, diagnostics and prognostics of mechanical system, design optimization, biomechanics, and protective device/structure.
Dr. Yang currently teaches or has teaching interest in Engineering Graphics, Industrial Computer-Aided Design, Advanced Mechanical Design, Vibration and Acoustics, Dynamics, Experimental Structural Dynamics, and Automotive engineering.
