Huang Boyun, member of Chinese Academy of Engineering

Huang Boyun, male, Han Nationality, was born Nan County of Hunan Province in November 1945, CPC member. In 1969 he graduated from Department of Special Metallurgy at Central South Mining and Metallurgy Institute. From 1980 to 1986 he pursued his master's and doctoral degree at Iowa State University in the United States and then worked as postdoc at the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, then returned China in 1988.

Professor Huang Boyun mainly engaged in research and teaching in advanced material, and completed a series of technical invention and innovation in the field of advanced composite materials, high performance friction materials, special materials, powder metallurgy.  He received 4 National Science and Technology Achievement Awards, 2 National Teaching Achievement Awards, among which the preparation technology of high-performance carbon / carbon aviation brake materials tackled the difficult in regulation of atomic arrangement, developed a series of patents with independent intellectual property rights of high composed by performance carbon / brake entire aviation materials preparation technology to meet the urgent need of high-performance aviation brake material of our country. He also built a high-performance carbon / carbon composite material industry platform, which provides key materials for our high-performance aerospace engine and is of great importance for guarantee the safety of China's aviation aerospace strategic safety. In 2005, he won the State Technological Invention Prize, ending up the vacancy of this award for six-year-history.  The high-performance powder metallurgy materials of airplane brake uses ceramic reinforced iron-based material and gradient composite technology, that has conquered two technical shortfalls of traditional metal-based friction material with "poor stability" and "poor wear-severe resistance". The invention of high-performance aircraft brake materials solved the major demands of national defense construction, and won the State Technology Invention.

Professor Huang Boyun established the State Key Laboratory of Powder Metallurgy, National Engineering Center of Powder Metallurgy, National Defense Science and Technology Key Laboratory of Lightweight, High strength, and Non-ferrous Advanced Structural Materials and Manufacturing Collaborative Innovation Center (2011 plan) and a series of innovative platforms. He also received the Returned Overseas Achievement Award, Ho Leung Ho Lee Science and Technology Progress Award, and the National Defense Science and Technology Industrial Systems Advanced Workers, Young Experts with Outstanding Contributions, National Outstanding Professional and Technical Person, one of Ten people of " Touching China of CCTV 2005 ", National Labor Model, National Outstanding Communist Party Member and other honorary titles.


In 1999, Professor Huang Boyun was elected to the Chinese Academy of Engineering, in 2007 was elected to the Academy of Sciences in developing countries. He undertook the director of Experts Committee of in the fields of New Materials from "10th 5-year Plan" National 863 Program. In 1997 he was the president of Central South University of Technology, then the president of Central South University from 2001 to 2011. CPC representative of 16th and 17th National People's Congress, the Eleventh National Committee of CPPCC. Currently he is standing committee of twelfth NPC, vice-chairman of China Association for Science, chairman of Hunan Association for Science, director of Chinese Materials Research Society, professor of Central South University, National Advanced Worker.
