Dr. Ding-Yu Peng is a professor of Chemical Engineering and the head of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. Under the direction of Dr. Don B. Robinson, Peng introduced a two-parameter cubic equation of state now known as Peng–Robinson Equation of State during the 1970s while a research engineer.


Early life

Ding-Yu Peng was born in the Republic of China sometime in 1943.


Peng completed the Undergraduate Program in Chemical Engineering at the National Taiwan University in 1966. He studied for one year at Syracuse University during 1968-1969. Subsequently, he followed Dr. Leonard I. Stiel to the University of Missouri and obtained his PhD. in Chemical Engineering in 1973.

Work under Robinson

In late 1974, while working as a post-doctoral fellow under Dr. Robinson, the Natural Gas Processors Association requested a better gas model than was available at that time. Work on the Peng–Robinson equation of state was completed in 1975, and the results were published the following year.


Peng currently teaches Thermodynamics and Mass transfer at the University of Saskatchewan.


Peng earned a Doctor of Science degree in 2005. He was also the recipient of the 2006 Donald L. Katz Award by the Gas Processors Association. The award is for "outstanding accomplishments in gas processing research, and for excellence in engineering education."
