Huiming Yin specializes in the multi-scale/physics characterization of civil engineering materials and structures with experimental, analytical, and numerical methods. His research interests are interdisciplinary and range from structures and materials to innovative construction technologies and test methods. His representative research areas include multiscale characterization and design of warm mix asphalt, performance-based investigation of rubberized and polymer-modified asphalt, fracture testing and modeling of engineering materials and structures, nuclear test method for the compaction control of pavement construction, and multi-scale/physical characterization of smart materials and structures among others. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, United States Association for Computational Mechanics, and The International Association for Computational Mechanics.
Huiming Yin teaches courses in mechanics of solids and experimental mechanics. He is a registered professional engineer in Civil Engineering at California.
