INTRODUCTION TO EDITORS
Dr. Wai-Fah Chen is Professor of Civil Engineering at the
University of Hawaii. 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
