Teng Wu, assistant professor in UB's Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, received the IAWE Junior Award from the International Association for Wind Engineering (IAWE).
The award recognizes the contributions of a researcher under the age of 40 with a record of outstanding achievements in the previous five-year period.
Specifically, the IAWE award recognizes Wu’s research in the development of analytical tools used to provide a better understanding of nonlinear and unsteady features regarding bridge aerodynamics. The tools are applicable to more than bridges, and can be used to analyze nonlinear and unsteady features in other wind sensitive structures.
“Teng continues to advance the understanding and analysis of wind engineering,” said Joseph Atkinson, professor and chair of the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering. “His work, especially the research honored by this award, continue to develop our department, the bridge engineering program and the Institute of Bridge Engineering.”
Wu joined UB in 2014. His research addresses the effects of service and extreme winds on the built environment. His interests include wind effects on bridges (buffeting and flutter, vortex-induced vibration and rain-wind induced vibration), hurricane wind and rain hazards, non-synoptic (transient) winds, nonstationary analysis and synthesis, nonlinear aerodynamics, Volterra theory, reduced-order modeling, and computational fluid dynamics.
