Kin Fung Chan joined the University of Oxford as a DPhil Candidate in September 2020. He previously obtained a MEng in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sheffield, with a Year Abroad at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Kin has industrial experience with placements at BAE Systems, Rolls Royce and E.ON Climate and Renewables.
Currently, Kin is carrying out research in the field of Computational Mechanics, focusing on numerical simulations of thermo-mechanical systems. A multi-scale approach is being used to analyse components that are rapidly loaded beyond their ultimate strength. Predominantly addressing the issues with automatic discretisation and the mapping of fields between length scales are being addressed.
His research requires collaboration with corresponding academic research teams in the Advanced Simulation and Modelling of Engineering Systems (ASiMoV) consortium, including researchers from Rolls-Royce plc.
