Dr. Sheng Xiaozhen is currently a full professor and doctoral supervisor at School of Urban Railway Transportation of SUES.
In February 1982, he graduated from the Water Conservancy Branch of Jiangxi Institute of Technology (now Nanchang Engineering College) and was selected as one of the excellent graduates to be a college teacher in that institute.From September 1984 to April 1987, he studied for a master's degree in general mechanics at Southwest Jiao Tong University. Then he studied for his Ph.D. from October 1999 to September 2001 at the Institute of Sound and Vibration (ISVR) at the University of Southampton, UK, and after graduation he continued to do full-time research at the Institute until March 2004, focusing on vibration and noise in the railway environment.
In August 2011, he was selected to the National Talent Program, returned to China in November 2011 and then served as the chief engineer of supercharged technology of Chang'an Hunan Tianyan Machinery Co., Ltd. in China. From January 2015 to December 19, he had been the principal professor and doctoral supervisor at the National Key Laboratory of Traction Power at Southwest Jiao Tong University, where he was engaged in talent training, scientific research and social services in the field of railway transportation vibration noise control. In addition, Dr. Sheng conducted the key research on several national research programs supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology and several development programs and projects for international cooperation. Besides, Dr. Sheng was responsible for the key project supported both by the Natural Science Foundation and the High-speed Railway Joint Fund, and the major project supported by the National Railway Corporation group. Dr. Sheng also participated in the vibration reduction and noise reduction for the Fuxing EMU .
Dr. Sheng’s research covers several branches in railway transportation, such as the vibration and noise generated by railway transportation, medium and high frequency analysis methods of complex acoustic systems, detuned impeller dynamics and blade vibration and high-cycle fatigue, exhaust gas turbocharger NVH, and etc.
