Dr. Dong-Yeob Park, P.Eng

Research Scientist

Research in fracture, mechanical behaviours/properties of materials

Current research and/or projects


I am currently serving as a research scientist at CanmetMATERIALS, Natural Resources Canada. I have been working on fracture and mechanical properties of engineering materials. I accomplished the PhD in Materials Science at McMaster University in Canada, and the master degree from Michigan state university in USA; thesis work involved mechanical properties and behaviours of engineering materials including both metals and non-metals.

Research and/or project statements

Current Research Projects:

  • Fracture
  • Deformation
  • Mechanical testing
