Yi Lung Mo
Yi Lung Mo works as a professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, University of Houston (UH), and Director of the Thomas T.C. Hsu Structural Research Laboratory. Dr. Mo received his B.S. degree in civil engineering from National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan, M.S. degree in structural engineering from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, M.S. degree in computer science from DePaul University, Chicago, Ill, USA, and Ph.D. degree in structural engineering in 1982 from the University of Hannover, Hannover, Germany. He was a Structural Engineer at Sargent and Lundy Engineers in Chicago, from 1984 to 1991, specializing in the design of nuclear power plants. Before joining UH in 2000, Dr. Mo was a Professor at the National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan. Professor Mo has more than 30 years of experience in studies of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures subjected to static, reversed cyclic or dynamic loading. In addition to earthquake design of concrete structures, he is an expert in composite and hybrid structures. His outstanding research achievements include the synergistic merging of structural engineering, earthquake engineering, and computer application. Professor Mo is the author or coauthor of the two books Dynamic Behavior of Concrete Structures (1994) and Unified Theory of Concrete Structures (2010) and is the editor or coeditor of four books. He has written more than 130 technical papers published in national and international journals. For his research and teaching, he received the Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow Award from Germany in 1995, the Distinguished Research Award from the National Science Council of Taiwan in 1999, the Teaching Excellent Award from National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, the Outstanding Teacher Award from the Cullen College of Engineering, University of Houston, and the Faculty Achievement Award from Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Houston.
