Teh, Lip H. Professor

Professor

  • School of Civil, Mining & Environmental Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences
  • Advanced Manufacturing Technologies
  • Advanced Structural Engineering and Construction Materials Group

Overview


Prior to joining University of Wollongong as a lecturer in late 2009, Dr. Lip Teh had been working as a structural engineer in the manufacturing and consulting industries for many years. In particular, he was involved with the development of design methodologies for cold-formed steel storage racks including high-bay racks, which are arguably the precursor to modular cold-formed steel constructions.

He brings his real world experience and research expertise in steel structures to lead a Steel Research Hub project on developing new cold-formed steel products and systems including connections that will help drive a market transformation towards the greater integration/adoption of cold formed steel products throughout the mid-rise apartment sector.
