Biography
W. T. ANG graduated with a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Adelaide, Australia. He has published many research articles on boundary integral methods and solutions of heat conduction and crack problems in internationally recognised journals. He has been affiliated with the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University since 2001.

Research

    Mathematical and computational modelling in engineering science, numerical techniques, integral equation based numerical methods, Green’s functions, heat and mass transfer, solid mechanics.
  • Projects:
    Integral equation solutions for functionally graded materials
    Integral equations are derived for the numerical solution of boundary value problems concerning heat conduction and elastic deformations in functionally graded materials.
    [Mechanics]
    Dynamic analysis of multiple interacting cracks in piezoelectric materials
    Semi-analytic solutions are derived in the Laplace transform domain for dynamic interacting planar cracks in an infinite piezoelectric space and an infinitely long piezoelectric strip.
