Assoc Prof Yang En-Hua

Dr. En-Hua 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 specializes in strain hardening cementitious composites (SHCC), high performance fiber-reinforced cementitious composites (HPFRCC), and micromechanics of fiber composites. His principal areas of research are high performance construction materials, intelligent construction materials, and waste to resource for construction materials. 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.
