Professor Shengqiang Shen got his PhD in Dalian University of Technology in 1989. He works in the university since then and he got the professorship in 1997. He is served as the Chairman of the Engineering Thermophysics Specialized Committee of Chinese University Society. He is also the Chief-Editor of Chinese Journal of Thermal Science and Technology.
Professor Shen’s research area covers thermal system performance analysis, heat and mass transfer, renewable energy utilization, energy saving technologies, etc. He is the author or coauthors of more than 400 journal papers, and gave a lot plenary, keynote or invited speeches on conferences. In the last decade his main achievement and contribution is in the thermal desalination area, including the heat transfer process, multi-phase flow and the system thermal optimization. He led the technical development of China’s first large-scale low temperature multi effect evaporation desalination engineering project. He proposed the characteristics of the thermal process of the large desalination plant, which promoted the structural optimization and precise design of desalination plant.
He is appointed as a member of Nuclear Desalination Technical Working Group in International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). He is also served as the head of National and Local Joint Engineering Research Center for Thermal Energy Integration, the head of Key Laboratory of Liaoning Province for Desalination.
