Overview


Dr. Yang has been involved in the study of sediment transport and hydraulics for almost 20 years. From 1988-1994, he engaged in large scale physical model studies of sediment transport in Three-Gorge Reservoir (one of the largest reservoirs in the world). From 1999-2005, he had the chances to study experimentally the sediment transport in Singapore strait and Singapore's beach evolution using physical model. After 2003, Dr. Yang has shifted his research works from experimental study to theoretical study.
