Biography

Dr. Gan leads the full-size stay cable and tendon fatigue and tensile qualification and performance tests, as well as steel strand and wire rope testing services in the Structural and Transportation Laboratory. He has completed more than 200 full-size stay cable and tendon fatigue, tensile and watertightness tests since 2005. His extensive expertise lie in mechanical (dynamic and static) testing of structural and bridge systems, bridge components (bearings, expansion joints, and concrete substructures), and construction materials such as steel. His reports provide evaluation, assessment, and acceptance of reinforced and post-tensioned concrete structures and components, and cable stays to the domestic and international suppliers, governing bodies, qualify management, owners, consultants, and contractors.

Dr. Gan has rich knowledge of bridge and structural testing specifications across the world, such as PTI, fib, CIP, AASHTO, ETAG, ASTM, ICC, ISO, EN, JIS, and JT/T.
