Professor of Structural and Fire Engineering
Professor Wang has graduated over 30 PhD students on different aspects of structural engineering and published more than 150 influential papers in academic journals, two books and two design guides. He won the Institution of Structural Engineers’ best research paper award (Henry Adam Award) twice, once in 2011 and again in 2015. Of particular relevance to the proposed project is his ongoing research on the EPSRC funded project (EP/N01135X/1) “Structural and Fire Resistance of a Reusable Steel/Concrete Composite Floor System”, in collaboration with Professor Dennis Lam, which aims to develop a demountable, reusable construction system. Professor Wang not only has successfully delivered a large number of research projects, he also has extensive experiences of translating research into practice.
