More About the Author
Professor Lee has been working on finite element simulations for more than 30 years, including applications, software development, research, and teaching. He graduated from the Department of Civil Engineering, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan in 1977 and was subsequently qualified as a Professional Engineer. With his P.E. license, he became a structural engineering practitioner as well as a software developer in Taipei. During that period, he and his partners designed many high-rise buildings and developed several finite element analysis programs, which were then commercialized. He received his M.S. in 1984 and Ph.D. in 1989, both from University of Iowa, USA. After that, he started to work as a Research Scientist in an Industry-University Cooperated Research Center of the University of Iowa. One of his functions was to integrate commercially available FEM programs with the programs developed by the Center, creating new engineering capabilities to support the industrial members of the Center. Today, Professor Lee is teaching in National Cheng Kung University, one of the most prestigious universities in Taiwan. He has authored two English books: "Finite Element Simulations with ANSYS Workbench" (2010, 2011, 2012) and "Mechanics of Materials Labs with SolidWorks Simulation" (2013); and two Chinese books: "Engineering Analysis with ANSYS: Fundamentals and Concepts" (2005) and "Taguchi Methods: Principles and Practices of Quality Design" (2000, 2008, 2011). He runs 6 km every morning and takes care his gardens during weekends.
