1995 - Member of the National Academy of Engineering For contributions to the theories of structural stability and plasticity and their application to structural design.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Structural engineering, Limit analysis, Frame, Plasticity and Soil mechanics. His Structural engineering research includes themes of Connection and Tangent modulus. In his study, Soil plasticity is inextricably linked to Geotechnical engineering, which falls within the broad field of Limit analysis.
Wai-Fah Chen studied Frame and Elastic analysis that intersect with Algorithm, Series expansion and Order. The Plasticity study combines topics in areas such as von Mises yield criterion, Plane stress, Orthotropic material, Mechanical engineering and Fracture mechanics. His Finite element method research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Elasticity, Simple, Material properties, Construction engineering and Properties of concrete.
His primary areas of study are Structural engineering, Plasticity, Composite material, Finite element method and Geotechnical engineering. Structural engineering is closely attributed to Frame in his work. His Plasticity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Linear elasticity, Limit analysis, Constitutive equation and Biaxial tensile test.
His work deals with themes such as Slope stability and Soil mechanics, which intersect with Limit analysis. His study in the field of Ultimate tensile strength, Polymer, Ductility and Material properties is also linked to topics like Polymer concrete. His study in Finite element method is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mechanical engineering, Fracture mechanics and Strength of materials.
Structural engineering, Bridge engineering, Finite element method, Plastic hinge and Mechanical engineering are his primary areas of study. His Structural engineering study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Composite number. His Bridge engineering study incorporates themes from Construction engineering, Civil engineering and Substructure.
His Construction engineering research integrates issues from Hydraulics and Field. His Plastic hinge study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Order, Stiffness, Limit state design and Truss. His Mechanical engineering study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Structural level, Kinematics, Stress–strain curve and Strength of materials.
Wai-Fah Chen mainly investigates Structural engineering, Bridge engineering, Plastic hinge, Civil engineering and Construction engineering. His work carried out in the field of Structural engineering brings together such families of science as Mechanical engineering, Geotechnical engineering and Soil plasticity. The concepts of his Mechanical engineering study are interwoven with issues in Structural level, Kinematics, Stress–strain curve and Finite element method.
His Plastic hinge research incorporates themes from Bending stiffness, Stiffness, Truss and Limit state design. His work on Composite girder as part of general Civil engineering research is often related to Mykhailo and Humanities, thus linking different fields of science. His Construction engineering research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hydraulics, Field and Substructure.
