Climate Adaptable Structural Engineering (CASE) represents a multi-disciplinary endeavor to tackle the untenable status quo surrounding our current cities facing the effects of climate change and other stressors that emerge throughout the 21st century. By working across disciplines encapsulating structural engineering, mechanical engineering, ocean engineering, and architecture, we aim to foster innovative solutions that enable future cities to adapt to a range of possible climate scenarios. To realize this objective, focus is placed on the following research themes:
Coastal structures subject to extreme wind, waves, and storm surge flooding
Floating structures as a sustainable alternative to land reclamation
Architecture-inspired solutions to urban resilience and structural art
CASE directly targets the Future World Vision initiative launched by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the United Nations UN-Habitat program for sustainable urban development.
We are constantly aiming to expand! To inquire about MS and Ph.D. opportunities, please contact the principal investigator Dr. Shengzhe (Jackson) Wang.
