Research Area:

Structural Engineering, Structural Control, Earthquake Engineering, Structural Health Monitoring 

Research Experience:

Dr. Yen-Po Wang received his Master of Science in Civil Engineering (1988), and Ph.D. (1991) degrees from the State University of New York at Buffalo, USA. He joined the faculty of NCTU as an associate professor in 1994 and was promoted to full professor in 2001. Prof. Wang has been working in the field of earthquake engineering for over 30 years since his graduate study in National Center of Earthquake Engineering Research at SUNY/Buffalo in USA. He has been participating in research projects on passive and active structural control against earthquake and wind loads. He has been devoting himself in advancing Taiwan’s “earthquake hazard mitigation industry” after the 1999 Ji-Ji earthquake by providing technical supports in seismic retrofit of existing buildings. Prof. Wang has been focusing his research interest, over a decade, on seismic hazard mitigation of hi-tech industries in light of their unacceptable financial losses in 1999 Ji-Ji earthquake and subsequent earthquakes. Meanwhile, he is also engaged in developing structural health monitoring techniques, in particular, the on-line system identification and flexibility-based damage localization method. All the proposed techniques have been verified experimentally via shaking table tests in his laboratory at NCTU. He has a number of patents in structural vibration control which have found many industrial applications.
