Personal profile



Dr. Muhammad Kashif Khan joined the Coventry University in August 2015 as Lecturer in Aerospace Structures. He was awarded a PhD scholarship from UK, in 2006, on a project funded by Airbus, Germany. The project was a joint consortium of Airbus, The Open University, UK and Cranfield University, UK. He was selected for two years postdoctoral study in Sichuan University, China through “Young International Scientist Award 2011” from National Science Foundation of China (NSFC). He has worked in different aerospace companies and has published numerous papers on residual stresses, light weight engineering alloys, honeycomb structures and their behaviour up to extremely high loading cycles (10e9-10e12).

His other curricular interests are space sciences, space policy/ laws and near earth objects (NEOs).


Area of Expertise:


Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics, Residual Stress Analysis, Nanomechanics

Research Interests

Fatigue; Cyclic Plasticity; Residual Stresses; Modelling and Simulations

Vision Statement

My research moves around the effect of different manufacturing methods on the performance of engineering materials and structures in their service life. I apply novel experimental and modelling methods to better understand the behaviour of aerospace, locomotive, power plant and other materials/structures under complex loading environments. I am also interested in repair and life enhancement techniques of engineering materials through innovative methods. My aim is to develop robust models for durable and safe performance of critical engineering components. I am extremely keen to develop a portfolio to serve industrial demands through cutting edge research and development.

Currently my research is funded by:

US Airforce on "Investigation of Residual Stress Stability in Laser Shock Peened Components in Complex Fatigue Loading Environments"

Llyods Register Foundation and National Structural Integrity Research Center (NSIRC) on "Structural Integrity and Qualification of 316L Austentitic Stainless Steel by Optimisation of of Additive Manufacturing Process Parameters" 


Education/Academic qualification
