Research Interests and History

Fu-pen Chiang's research emphasis is on the development of optical and other experimental mechanics techniques and their applications to stress analysis (including NDE), fracture and fatigue of engineering and biological materials and structures. He has written some 380 articles published in 44 archival journals and numerous conference proceedings. He lectures widely throughout the world and was a visiting faculty of Cambridge University, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Lausanne), National Taiwan University, Qinghua University among others.  His research has been supported by NSF, NIH, ARO, ONR, AFOSR, DOT and industrial concerns. Dr. Chiang is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, SPIE – International Society of Optics and Photonics, Optical Society of America, and the Society for Experimental Mechanics. He received the Frocht Award (2008) and Lazan Award (1993) from the Society of Experimental Mechanics and the Life Time Achievement Medal (2012) from the International Conference of Computational and Experimental Engineering and Sciences.
