Dr. Lin received his Masters degree in 1973 and Ph.D. degree in 1977 from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, specializing in Aircraft Structures and Composite Materials.

Dr. Lin has over 40 years of research and development experience in advanced composite materials and structures. He has pioneered a singular hybrid finite element method for the accurate analysis of biomaterial fracture problems (1976), and co-developed the well-known 'Mar-Lin' fracture model (1977) which is being used by Boeing and other aerospace companies for predicting strength of composites with holes or cut-outs. During the period 1978-1983, Dr. Lin was a senior specialist engineer at Boeing, working on Boeing's first major composite aircraft program, ACDP, in the areas of research and development. Since his appointment to the University of Washington faculty in 1984, he has developed an extensive research program in aerospace composite materials. He has been awarded 50 research grants and contracts by FAA, NASA, DOD and Boeing in the analysis, design, testing, and repair of advanced composite materials and aircraft structures. Dr. Lin's research has resulted in over 100 scholarly publications in leading journals and conference proceedings. Currently, as a Principal Investigator, he is conducting several research projects, sponsored by FAA, Boeing and Toray, on disbond arrest mechanisms and probabilistic design methodology and maintenance planning for composite structures in large transport such as 787. Results of his research will contribute directly to design, inspection, and regulatory compliance of aerospace vehicles made of composite materials.

In addition to his research endeavors, Dr. Lin has concentrated his teaching on the subjects of composite materials, aircraft structures, and finite element methods. He has received Professor of Year awards three times from the Aeronautics and Astronautics department for his excellence in teaching and research in aircraft composite structures. In 2005, in partnership with Boeing, Dr. Lin successfully developed the UW-Boeing Certificate Program in Aircraft Composite Structural Analysis and Design (ACSAD). The certificate program provides working engineers with state-of-the-art training in analysis tools and design methodology necessary to develop aerospace composite structural hardware. To date, Prof. Lin has taught ACSAD certificate Courses to more than 1,500 Boeing engineers. The UW-Boeing ACSAD Certificate Program received 2007 Annual Corporate University Xchange (CUX) top 'Excellence' Award in the Corporate/University Partnerships category for "excellence and innovation in corporate learning" in America. Recently, the ACSAD Certificate Program won 2011 ASEE/CMC Highest Honors: Excellence in Engineering Education Collaboration Award. In addition, Dr. Lin has delivered short courses on composite materials to aviation industries and professional societies in the US, Singapore, Korea, India, and Taiwan. Based on his contribution to various high-value educational programs, Professor Lin was awarded the prestigious University of Washington's Presidential Award on Distinguished Contributions to Life-long Learning in 2014. Recently, under the sponsorship of Boeing and UW PCE, Prof. Lin has developed and taught an online course on Composite Materials. More than 12,000 students from 153 countries have enrolled in this course that ended in February 1, 2015.

The present study investigates whether lightweight fabrics can be used for reinforcing the Unit Load Device (ULD) of a commercial aircraft, protecting them from potential bomb threats or explosives. As a first step, a numerical model of the fabric was developed and introduced to LS-Dyna for modeling a low-velocity impact event and the results were compared against conducted corresponding experiments

Large Eddy Simulation combined with an Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC) combustion model shows the feasibility for simulations of a full scale aircraft immersed within a large aviation-fuel fire in a moving fluid medium. Coupling between the condensed fuel and gas phases allows investigating the roles of the wind condition on the burning rate of condensed fuel, and consequently, the heat release rate.

A rudimentary vestibular system as a single sensory system for a multi-rigid body system is proposed. The semi-circular canals represent the main sensors for the state of the physical system, and are modeled as accelerometers. Their outputs are used to estimate the angular velocities and positions of the multi-rigid body system.

Advantages achieved by 3-D printing of hybrid rocket fuels are presented. This approach overcomes multiple manufacturing issues frequently associated with hybrid rockets including low fuel regression rates and poor ignitability. Using 3-D printing also allows fabrication of fuel grains with port shapes that enhance burn properties and increase volumetric efficiency.
