Professor Hua Meng received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Department of Power Mechanical Engineering at Dalian University of Technology in 1990 and 1993, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree from Department of Mechanical Engineering at Pennsylvania State University (University Park) in May 2001. From January 2001, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar in the Propulsion Engineering Research Center at Penn State University for nine months. In October 2001, he moved to the Electrochemical Engine Center at Penn State as a research associate to conduct research on PEM fuel cell modeling. In September 2005, he joined Zhejiang University as a professor and now works in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Professor Hua Meng's teaching and research focus mainly on supercritical-pressure heat transfer, high-pressure combustion, renewable and alternative energy. He has published many high-quality peer-reviewed journal articles in these fields. These papers have been cited in the SCI-indexed journal articles publsihed by other scholars (excluding self citations) for more than 1000 times, with an H factor of 22. A research paper he coauthored received Chemical Engineering Science 2003-2006 most cited paper award, and another paper received International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer 2002-2005 and 2005-2008 most cited article award. According to SCOPUS database, two technical papers he coauthored are among the most cited articles published in 2004 and 2005, respectively, in Journal of the Electrochemical Society, and two papers in 2010 and 2012 in AIAA Journal of Thermophysics and Heat Transfer.
Professor Hua Meng is a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and an Associate Fellow of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). He serves as an editorial board member of the international journal of Advances in Mechanical Engineering. He is one of the most cited Chinese researchers in energy section every year from 2014 to 2017.
