Associate Professor Teng Wu received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Notre Dame in 2013. Wu has made significant contributions to the development of analytical and computational methods focusing on nonlinear and transient structural aerodynamics, performance-based wind design, and community resilience to hurricane (wind, rain and surge hazards). His contributions have been recognized through the 2013 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) O.H. Ammann Research Fellowship, 2014 American Association for Wind Engineering (AAWE) Best Paper Award, 2016 ASCE Alfred Noble Prize, 2017 International Association for Wind Engineering (IAWE) Junior Award, 2017 AAWE Robert Scanlan Award, 2018 International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) Prize, and 2023 IABSE Outstanding Paper Award.
Wu currently serves as the Associate Editor of ASCE Journal of Bridge Engineering, ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering, IABSE Structural Engineering International, Frontiers in Built Environment, and Intelligent Transportation Infrastructure. He is an Executive Board Member of IAWE, Member of AAWE Board of Directors, Member of Super-Long-Span Bridge Aerodynamics Working Group and Effects of Climate Change on Infrastructures Working Group of IABSE, Member of TRB (Transportation Research Board) Committee on Rail Safety and Research Working Group of Committee on Extreme Weather and Climate Change Adaptation, Board Member of International Joint Research Laboratory in Wind Engineering, Member of Academic Committee for International Joint Research Laboratory of Rail Transportation Safety, and Member of US Resiliency Council-Wind Technical Advisory Committee.
Wu serves on a number of ASCE committees including ASCE 7 Main Committee and Wind Load Subcommittee, Technical Council on Future Weather and Climate Extremes (Chair), ASCE AI in Transportation Committee (Co-Chair of Research Subcommittee), ASCE/EMI Fluid Dynamics Committee (Vice Chair), and ASCE/SEI Cable-Supported Bridges Committee (Chair). He also serves on ACI (American Concrete Institute) Committee 375-Performance-Based Design of Concrete Buildings for Wind Loads (Secretary) and ACI Subcommittee 318W-Wind Provisions (Structural Concrete Building Code).
Wu has obtained support for his research from federal and state agencies in the United States and through industrial and international collaborations. Wu has also authored more than 100 articles published in respected journals of structural/wind engineering, and presented over 110 conference papers.
