Fangying Wang

Assistant Professor in Structural Engineering, Faculty of Engineering



Dr Fangying Wang is an Assistant Professor in Structural Engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Nottingham. She is engaged in teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and is working in the Centre for Structural Engineering & Informatics Research Group.

She joined the university in July 2020. Prior to that, she was a postdoctoral research fellow at Nanyang Technological University. She obtained her BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering from Tongji University in 2014. Afterwards, she was awarded the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship to pursue her PhD in Structural Engineering at the University of Hong Kong and obtained the degree in 2018. She was a visiting PhD student at Imperial College London from 2017 to 2018.

Expertise Summary

Dr Fangying Wang's principal research interests lie in the areas of laboratory testing, numerical modelling and the assessment and development of design rules for high-performance steel and composite steel structures. In particular, her current research focuses on various domains of structural engineering including, but not limited to, local and global stability of stainless steel tubular structures, high strength steel open section structures, and concrete-filled steel tubular structures. She has been leading in research projects on sustainable constructions with green and recycled materials, and structural resilience of steel structures after fire hazards.
