Biography

Dr SL Chan is one of the contributors for research, development and codification of the new structural design method, namely the second-order P-D-d or Direct Analysis which allows design of structures without assuming effective lengths. The method now appears in many design codes worldwide while he is among the few designing practical steel structures without effective length assumption required in the traditional design method, which include the recently completed single layer steel dome in Macau with one of the world’s longest clear span. He also won awards by professional institutions including the Joint Institution of Structural Engineers U.K. and Hong Kong Institution of Engineers in 2013 and by the Geotechnical Division in 2016 and by his university for technology transfer. His developed program NIDA is used by numerous universities for teaching of structural stability and by consultants for second-order direct analysis and design of steel and composite structures.
