Rongguang Wang received his B.Eng. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China, M.Eng. degree from Shanghai Institute of Materials, China, and Ph.D. degree of engineering from Hiroshima University, Japan. Wang is now an Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Systems Engineering in Hiroshima Institute of Technology (Japan), a position he has held since 2005. Before 2005, he has worked for Hiroshima University (Japan) as an Associate Professor since 2003. He focuses his research interest mainly on metal surfaces, including the behavior of wettability of microliquids, corrosion, and wear resistances before and after various surface modifications by the methods of PVD, CVD, or electroless plating. His interest in corrosion science and engineering includes the sulfate acid dew-point corrosion of low alloyed steels, corrosion behavior and hydride formation of titanium alloys, galvanic corrosion between different metals, pitting corrosion of stainless steels and aluminum alloys, stress corrosion crack, hydrogen belittlement, and corrosion fatigue. Recently, he is working to clarify the suppression effect of ultrasound on the corrosion of metals and the relation between hydrophobic surface and corrosion resistance.
