Dr. Liping Liu has moved to Rutgers University since Spring 2012. Here is his new homepage page.

Our research group at the University of Houston focus on mechanics and materials --- multiscale-multiphysics analysis and modeling, optimal design of multiphase and multifunctional composites, and theoretical and computational material science.

Current research topics include:

Optimal bounds and optimal microstructures for multiphase composites

Eshelby inclusion problems

Modeling of smart composites

Dynamic modeling of heterogeneous structures/media

Variational inequalites and their applications in optimization

Superconductive materials and modeling

Surface energy and elasticity
