Youshi Hong is a Professor in the Institute of Mechanics (IMECH), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He was the Director of IMECH-CAS between 1998 and 2006. He has been the Editor-in-Chief for Fatigue & Fracture of Engineering Materials & Structures (FFEMS) since 2012. He was elected as an academician of Asia Pacific Academy of Materials Science in 2017.        

His research fields are mechanical behavior of materials, fracture mechanics and structure mechanics. His main research achievements are related to: high-cycle and very-high-cycle fatigue behavior of metallic materials; effects of second phase particles on deformation, fracture and stress corrosion cracking of steels; analyses of stress intensity factors and plastic zone sizes for notch-cracks and fatigue crack growth from a circular notch under biaxial stress; mechanism and modeling of collective damage evolution process of initiation and propagation for short fatigue cracks; mechanical behavior of nano-crystalline metallic materials; and dynamic response and prototype design of submerged floating tunnels. He has published 330 papers in academic journals and conference proceedings, and obtained 17 Chinese patents. He received a First Grade Award of Natural Science of CAS, a National Second Grade Award of Natural Science, a Second Grade Award of Natural Science of Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, and a First Grade Award of Science and Technology of China Highway & Transportation Society.
