Xi-Shu Wang received his B.S. degree in the Chongqing University, 1982, in China, his M.S. degree in the China University of Mining and Technology, 1989, in China and his P.hD. degree in Kagoshima University, in Japan, 1997. His current position is a Full Professor of the Department of Engineering mechanics, Tsinghua University, in Beijing, China. His research interests mainly focus on the mechanical behaviors and the damage mechanism of materials (biomaterials, conducting polymers films, etc.) in the micro-meso-macroscope (fatigue, creep, cracking, etc.), including the relationship between the microstructure and mechanical behaviors (damage mechanism) in modeling and experimental researches based on in situ observation with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and other measuring techniques. The main aim is to assess and describe the characterizations of these materials, such as interaction in multi-nano-/microinterface effect in coating/films and cracking contribution of the inclusions. He has published more than 130 scientific papers in domestic and international periodicals in English, Japanese, and Chinese. He has also published five books, which are Test and Analysis on Mechanical Behavior of Materials (No. 1 and No. 2), Experimental Guide on Mechanical Behavior of Advanced Materials by the Tsinghua University Press (ISBN 978-7-302-15514-0, 2007, ISBN 978-7-302-22435-8, 2010, 978-7-302-23278-0), and Metal Foams: A Design Guide by the Metallurgical Industry Press (ISBN 7-5024-4107-7), as well as Magnesium Alloys (ISBN 978-953-307-209-8) by the InTech Open Access Publisher, respectively.
