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.
