Successful doctoral defence

Ending the year with a successful doctoral thesis defense.


Our dear colleague Sha Yang was able to defend her doctoral thesis “Phase-field modeling for self-healing of mineral-based materials” and pass her doctoral examination with excellence.

After writing her master's thesis at the Institute of Construction and Building Materials, Sha Yang could be recruited as a research assistant. At WiB, she has supervised different courses and various research projects while working on her dissertation.

In addition to working with various special building materials (rubber concrete, mineral foam, PCM) and damage mechanisms, she focused primarily on numerical simulations and ultimately wrote her cumulative dissertation on this topic in combination with self-healing processes.

She passed the doctoral examination with distinction.

The team of the WiB, especially doctoral supervisor Prof. Eddie Koenders, are pleased and congratulate her once again!
