Biographical details

Associate Professor Luming Shen received his Bachelor's degree in Building Engineering and Master's degree in Structural Engineering from Tongji University, China. He worked as Structural Engineer in Shanghai Research Institute of Building Sciences, China, specializing in building structure design, from April 1997 to August 1999. After he received his PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Columbia, USA in July 2004, he worked as Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Missouri-Columbia until January 2006. Prior to joining the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney in July 2008, he was a Lecturer in Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University.

Research interests

Clean water is a global issue: its availability is essential to human and other forms of life. One of Associate Professor Luming Shen's current research projects involves working at nano-scale to develop a carbon nanotubes membrane to filter small particles from water in order to purify it. This will have implications for people around the world, enabling clean water to be derived from otherwise unsafe sources.

"My work involves researching the mechanics and behaviours of materials, including brittle materials such as concrete, rock and glass as well as ductile materials such as aluminium, titanium and other metals.

"Two of my current focuses are on nano-mechanics and materials, which relates to the water purification example, and the behaviour of novel composite materials under impact and other extreme loading conditions, which has safety applications within such contexts as the design of blast-resistant structures and vehicle impact studies.

"A lot of my work is carried out using a high-performance supercomputer, including modelling and simulation at molecular level as well as macro-level analyses. I also work in a laboratory, where I conduct physical tests on materials such as rock, metals and composites under high-speed impact.

"My research is mainly fundamental. I'm trying to develop our understanding of the physics behind these phenomena. This knowledge will then be able to be used in real-world applications such as desalinating water, improving vehicle safety and controlling rock fragmentation in mining.

"I've been working in this field for about 10 years, and joined the University of Sydney about five years ago. The School of Civil Engineering in particular has been very supportive of my research, especially in terms of facilities and equipment. My research takes space, and the equipment I use is quite large. The University has provided me with the space and facilities I need to pursue my research."
