Awards and Achievements

Two research projects led by scholars from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) have been honoured with the First -Class Awards of the Chinese Society of Vibration Engineering Science and Technology Awards 2023. 

PolyU’s two scholars, Prof. Li CHENG, Associate Dean (Research) of Faculty of Engineering and Chair Professor  of Mechanical Engineering and Prof . Yong XIA, Professor of Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, have been bestowed the First-Class Awards for their outstanding achievements in vibration engineering. 

Prof. CHENG’s awarded project is titled “Acoustic black holes and applications to vibration and noise control in equipment engineering.” Vibration and noise are major concerns and challenging problems in numerous engineering applications. His research team has conducted a series of work that has systematically unveiled the fundamental physical principles of slow wave phenomena in vibrating structures. They have also established a comprehensive analysis and design methodology, and devised new structures suitable for diverse vibration and noise control applications in equipment engineering.

Prof. XIA’s awarded project is titled “Machine learning methods for structural health diagnosis and operation maintenance of bridges.” It aims to develop cutting-edge machine learning methods of full-field measurement and modal identification, damage detection, reliability evaluation, and decision-making in the operational maintenance of bridges. These innovative techniques enable accurate health diagnosis and cost-effective operation maintenance strategies for bridge structures. 

Prof. CHENG’s project entails collaboration with Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Nanjing University of Science and Technology, while Prof. XIA’s project is conducted in collaboration with Harbin Institute of Technology. 

The Chinese Society of Vibration Engineering Science and Technology Awards aim to promote innovative technology the field of vibration engineering. A total of four First-Class Awards and 12 Second-Class Awards were granted to the universities and institutions in 2023.
