Ming Yin, Ph.D.,
Senior Engineer
Materials & Corrosion Engineering
Shanghai

Dr. Yin's areas of expertise include thermodynamic analysis, diffusion, metallurgy, material characterization, failure analysis, and corrosion of alloys, especially intermetallics. In Exponent, he focused on fracture analysis of metal and glass, solder and solder ball grid array (BGA) related issues, contamination analysis, corrosion of materials used in consumer electronics, and characterization of anode and cathode materials.

The topic of his Ph.D. dissertation is the thermodynamics of selected intermetallic compounds. They were prepared through powder metallurgy or arc melting and characterized using calorimeters, XRD, dilatometry, SEM and EDS. Measured thermodynamic properties were compiled in a database to facilitate the design and utilization for other researchers.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Yin was a Managing Process Engineer at CITIC Dicastal Co. Ltd., a world leading manufacturer of aluminum wheel hubs. He managed the design and optimization of process parameters in the foundry department, including the concentration of adding alloy elements, heat treating temperature and other processing conditions and parameters. He also led a team to design the foundry department for a new plant, including the process flow, plant layout, process parameters, equipment specifications, and employee training.
