Asst Prof YANG En-Hua

Co-Principal Investigator

Dr Yang is Associate Professor with the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University. Prior to joining NTU, Dr. Yang was a forensic engineer in Exponent’s Buildings and Structures practice. He received his PhD degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan. Dr Yang specialises in the development of sustainable infrastructure through the innovative construction materials technology. His principal areas of expertise are strain hardening cementitious composites SHCC, composite micromechanics, material characterisation, and material microstructure analysis and tailoring. He is experienced in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating system and is a LEED Accredited Professional certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Dr Yang is a board member of the ASCE-Singapore session and is also a committee member of ACI Technical Committee 130 Sustainability of Concrete and RILEM Technical Committee SHE Self-healing concrete – its efficiency and evaluation.
