Prof. Cheng Chia-Chi, Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at CYUT has been elected as a foreign member of the Academy of Engineering in Poland
Congratulations! Prof. Cheng Chia-Chi, Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at Chaoyang University of Technology (CYUT) in Taiwan, has been elected as a foreign member of the Academy of Engineering in Poland.
Prof. Cheng, the awarded excellent scholar elected by the Ministry of Science and Technology in Taiwan, is currently the Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at CYUT. She received a B.S. from National Taiwan University in 1988, M.Eng. and Ph. D from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University in 1989 and 1993, respectively. Prior to her current appointment, she served for 3 years as the Chair of Department of Construction Engineering at CYUT. Since 2014, she has been serving as the Chair of Non-Destructive Test committee at Chinese Institute of Civil and Hydraulic Engineering in Taiwan.
The Center for NDT at CYUT (CNDT), which she founded in 2005, is one of the most well-known civil engineering related non-destructive testing centers in Taiwan and carries out dozens of projects each year. The testing subjects include nuclear power plants, high-speed railways, prestressed bridges, airport pavement, pier foundations, high-tech factory plants, dikes, dams, wind turbines, residential structures, etc. The annual commissioned budget averages ten million NT dollars.
Prof. Cheng is specialized in concrete non-destructive evaluation using stress-wave methods. She has received 22 Research Grants and has published over 130 journal and conference papers, and more than 180 technical reports in the areas of stress-wave related NDT methods, bridges assessment using Microwave Interferometer, and new applications using Ground Penetration Radar. She developed a technique called normalized impact-echo method (IE) to evaluate many defect scenarios which can hardly be assessed by other methods, such as distinguishing crack with epoxy infilled crack, evaluation of interfacial bond condition between concrete plate-like structure and soil or epoxy based substrate, loss of bond of reinforced concrete subjected to early-age vibration or the fulfill of concrete in steel plate jacketed composite structure. This technique has been utilized in many field works in Taiwan.
Recently, Prof. Cheng has been developing another innovated technique for quick assessment of the depth of concrete surface deterioration such as concrete subjected to segregation and bleeding or after fire.
Prof. Tao-Ming Cheng, the President of CYUT, said," the College of Science and Engineering has won numerous prizes and awards under Prof. Cheng ’s leading; the amount of money in Industry-Academia Cooperation is more than 6 billion a year, which is an outstanding achievement." He added, "The college founded The International Journal of Applied Science and Engineering (IJASE) in 2003. Since then, many professors and experts from top universities in different countries have been invited to be the editors of this journal." IJASE has been subordinated in Scopus, the biggest information retrieval system of the world.
