Prof. Zhang has undertaken research on the new process principles, characterization and modeling of sheet and tube forming processes for over 30 years, and has significant expertise in the field of materials processing engineering and in particular the computer modeling of metal forming processes using numerical methods. He invented the integral hydroforming technology of double-layer spherical vessels in 1991 with Prof. ZR Wang at Harbin Institute of Technology and gave a systematic analysis of the process principle. He got his first invention patent for this new technology. Then he has been devoted to research on sheet hydroforming and hydro mechanical deep drawing technology from his work in Aalborg University of Denmark in 1996, and then continues the work until now. He has published over 50 papers on this topic. He proposed a movable female die method for sheet hydroforming by which the forming limit of sheet metals can be improved remarkably, and he got his 2nd patent in 2001. From 1999 he has been working at IMR/CAS, he is also devoted to tube forming technology and magnesium alloy sheet parts. He has been working as the Director of R&D Centre of Golden Dragon Copper Group (Director of Engineering Research Centre for Precision Copper Tubes) since 2001 and is working on cast and rolling processes of copper tubes, he has made achievements in cast and roll forming of Ni-Cu alloy tubes and the company has been developing a new production line. Golden Dragon Group has been No.1 in the world in copper tube production since 2006. He proposed warm sheet forming technology of magnesium alloy sheets and made a great progress for the process development. He was invited to Japan to give a Special Lecture on this topic in July 2006, and also presented conference reports in Beijing in November 2006 at the Chinese Mg Society Conference and in a Forum in Tianjin in January 2007. Now he has published over 30 papers on this topic. He began working on cross rolling of magnesium alloy sheets in 2003 and got very good results. He conducted a cooperation with Risoe National Lab on grain evolution and texture study to improve formability of Mg sheets from 2006-2007, he has got very good results. He also is working on modeling of microstructures of strip rolling in recent years. He has obtained many prizes and awards for his work, including the A.M. Strickland Prize, awarded by the Division of Manufacturing Industries of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers for the best paper published in the Proceedings of IMechE as a significant contribution to the field of manufacturing,London, UK, June 15, 2011. He is now responsible for the Advanced Metal Forming Technology Group of IMR, Vice Head of Department of Special Materials and Devices, and Director of an Engineering Research Centre of CAS. He has supervised 40 PhD students among whom 31 have obtained PhD degrees. Also 28 Master students have got their master degrees. He is now the Vice Chairman of Chinese Society for Technology of Plasticity, Secretary General of CDDRG, Chairman of NUMIFORM2013 conference. He is member of Editorial Board of 7 academic journals, part time professor to Dalian University of Technology and Shenyang Ligong University.
