Dr. Hongyu Qin earned his Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering from Zhengzhou University, Master in Geotechnical Engineering at Hohai University in China and PhD in Geotechnical Engineering at Griffith University. Prior to joining Flinders University, he served as a Lecturer at Griffith University. Dr. Qin leads both teaching and research initiatives in Geotechnical Engineering and is the Discipline Lead in Civil Engineering for the CSE Engineering Honours Masters Thesis and Projects. His research focuses primarily on three areas: (1) behaviour and mechanical properties of geomaterials; (2) pile foundations for renewable energy; and (3) Measurement While Drilling (MWD). Dr. Qin collaborates and interacts closely with industry. His research has contributed to the design of foundation systems. Notably, the algorithms and solutions he developed have been licensed to industry partners, contributing to the development of an Engineering Calculator APP. This innovative tool accelerates calculation tasks, offering more precise estimates within a performance-based design framework. Market testing of the APP indicates acceptance by governing bodies as a compliant tool with industry codes. Dr. Qin is currently consolidating his research outcomes into a book, which includes analytical solutions and a comprehensive database of pile tests. In recent years, he has expanded his focus to include MWD and Machine Learning, showcasing his commitment to staying at the forefront of advancements in the field.
