Dr. Zhu specializes in the research and development of aerospace structures and materials. Dr. Zhu applies techniques in dynamic interface analysis to applications including the dynamics and control of aerial refueling hoses and other towed equipment. Dr. Zhu directs the Materials and Structure Laboratory that utilises photometric and ultrasonic instrumentation to measure motion and material stress.
