Dr. DongHun Yeo is a guest researcher in the National Windstorm Impact Reduction Program (NWIRP) of the Materials and Structural Systems Division (MSSD) of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Dr. Yeo is affiliated with Johns Hopkins University and have worked as IPA research engineer in the Structures group, Building and Fire Research Laboratory since 2009. Before pursuing his doctoral degree, he was involved in many design and consulting projects of steel and reinforced concrete structures as structural engineer in Hyundai construction and engineering company, Korea.
Dr. Yeo's current research includes the development of Database-Assisted Design for High-Rise Structures (HR_DAD) software, the optimization of embodied energy in reinforced concrete structures, the development of synthetic large wind speed data of hurricane and non-hurricane winds, and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)-based tools for wind engineering.
Dr. Yeo is a member of the Task Committee on Computer-Aided Wind Engineering in Structural Wind Engineering Committee, American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
