He was Dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Hawaii from 1999 to 2007, and a George E. Goodwin Distinguished Professor of Civil Engineering and Head of the Department of Structural Engineering at Purdue University from 1976 to 1999. He received his B.S. in civil engineering from the National ChengKung University, Taiwan, in 1959, M.S. in structural engineering from Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, in 1963, and Ph.D. in solid mechanics from Brown University, Rhode Island, in 1966. He received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the National Cheng-Kung University in 1988 and the Distinguished Engineering Alumnus Medal from Brown University in 1999. Dr. Chen’s research interests cover several areas, including constitutive modeling of engineering materials, soil and concrete plasticity, structural connections, and structural stability. He is the recipient of several national engineering awards, including the Raymond Reese Research Prize and the Shortridge Hardesty Award, both from the American Society of Civil Engineers, and the T. R. Higgins Lectureship Award in 1985 and the Lifetime Achievement Award, both from the American Institute of Steel Construction. In 1995, he was elected to the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. In 1997, he was awarded Honorary Membership by the American Society of Civil Engineers. In 1998, he was elected to the Academia Sinica (National Academy of Science) in Taiwan. A widely respected author, Dr. Chen authored and coauthored more than 20 engineering books and 500 technical papers. His books include several classical works such as Limit Analysis and Soil Plasticity (Elsevier, 1975), the two-volume Theory of Beam-Columns (McGraw-Hill, 1976 and 1967), Plasticity in Reinforced Concrete (McGraw-Hill, 1982), and the two-volume Constitutive Equations for Engineering Materials (Elsevier, 1994). He currently serves on the editorial boards of more than 10 technical journals. He has been listed in more than 20 Who’s Who publications. Dr. Chen is the editor-in-chief for the popular 1995 Civil Engineering Handbook, the 1997 Handbook of Structural Engineering, and the 1999 Bridge Engineering Handbook, the 2003 Earthquake Engineering Handbook. He currently serves as the consulting editor for McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology. He has been a longtime member of the Executive Committee of the Structural Stability Research Council and the Specification Committee of the American Institute of Steel Construction. He has been a consultant for Exxon Production Research on offshore structures, for Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill in Chicago on tall steel buildings, and for the World Bank on the Chinese University Development Projects, among many others. Dr. Chen has taught at Lehigh University, Purdue University, and the University of Hawaii. 4/4 Dr. Lian Duan is a Senior Bridge Engineer and Structural Steel Committee Chair with the California Department of Transportation, USA. He had worked at the North China Power Design Institute from 1975 to 1978 and taught at Taiyuan University of Technology from 1981 to 1985. He received his Diploma in Civil Engineering in 1975, M.S. in Structural Engineering in 1981 from Taiyuan University of Technology, and Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from Purdue University in 1990. Dr. Duan’s research interests cover areas including inelastic behavior of reinforced concrete and steel structures, structural stability, seismic bridge analysis and design. With more than 70 authored and co-authored papers, chapters, and reports, his research focuses on the development of unified interaction equations for steel beam-columns, flexural stiffness of reinforced concrete members, effective length factors of compression members, and design of bridge structures. Dr. Duan has over 30 years experience in structural and bridge engineering. He was lead engineer for the development of Caltrans Guide Specifications for Seismic Design of Steel Bridges. He is registered Professional Engineer in California. He served the member for the several National Highway Cooperative Research Program (NCHRP) Panels and was a Transportation Research Board (TRB) Steel Committee member from 2000 - 2006. He is co-editor of the Bridge Engineering Handbook, (CRC Press, 1999), winner of a Choice magazine's Outstanding Academic Title award for 2000. He received the prestigious 2001 Arthur M. Wellington Prize from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for the paper, “Section Properties for Latticed Members of San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge”, Journal of Bridge Engineering, May 2000 ” He received the Professional Achievement Award from Professional Engineers in California Government in 2007.
