About

Overview

Dr Feng Fu is current Chair, Institution of Structural Engineers,North Thames Regional Group. He is an Associate Editor , Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities, American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). He is a Chartered Structural Engineer, Fellow of Institution of Structural Engineers, Fellow of American Society of Civil Engineering and Fellow of Institution of Civil Engineers.Prior to joining academia, he worked for several world leading consultancy companies and was involved in the design of extensive prestigious construction projects worldwide, such as the tallest building in Western Europe, the Shard in London. He worked at advance analysis team in WSP Group Ltd London followed his work as a Structural Engineer in Waterman Group Ltd London. In China, He also worked as a structural engineer for one of the best and the oldest design institute in China, Beijing Institute of Architectural Design and Research before his study of PhD in UK. When he was doing his Master in Structural Engineering, he worked as a research assistant in China Academy of Building research, worked on research projects funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China. He received his PhD in Structural Engineering from University of Leeds, MSc in software Engineering from University of Oxford and MBA from University of Manchester. He obtained his MSc and BSc in Structural Engineering from Beijing University of Technology respectively.

Dr Fu has extensive research experience in the area of progressive collapse, structural fire analysis of tall buildings and long span structures, Tensegrity structures and composite joints. He specialized in advanced numerical modelling and developed several modelling programs using different programming languages.He also carried out several full scale tests on composite joints. His recent research has been focused on investigating the behavior of high-rise buildings, bridges and offshore structures under extreme loads such as blast and fire using advanced 3-D numerical modelling techniques. He has published more 100 peer reviewed technical papers, three popular text books by three top publishers in the world. He is also the reviewer for more than 40 international Journals. He is also the editorial board member for three international journals, voting member for two design codes of ASCE.

  7. Modelling Complex Structures in Modern Construction Projects. Imperial College (2016). With the fast development of modern construction technology, increasing complex buildings were built in the past decades. It is widely recognized by most of the engineers that, without using advanced modelling techniques, most of these buildings would not have been designed. It also requires structural engineers to have the ability to handle the increasing difficulty in designing more complicated projects required by both clients and architects. This requires the capacity of an engineer to use modern software packages and understand related analysis theories. In this evening talk, the most popular software used in the current design practice such as ANSYS, ABAQUS, SAP2000, ETABS will be introduced and how to choose between them will also be discussed. The way to set up complex model and relevant theory underpin the analysis will also be illustrated. Different modelling examples such as tall buildings, long span structures as well as blast analysis, buckling analysis, earthquake analysis will be demonstrated.
