General Field: Structural Engineering

Case Summary:

An expert in the field of structural engineering from China came to NAILG seeking help with his NIW (National Interest Waiver) application. We soon found out that he wanted to continue to use his extensive experience with materials design, manufacturing, and testing to develop renewable structural materials with low carbon footprints. This would aid in advancing sustainable engineering practices and provide viable pathways to the realization of a net zero-carbon built environment. Evidently, his research was of great importance because it accelerates the adoption of sustainable structural building materials with high strength and cost-effectiveness, and low carbon footprints. At the same time, his proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States. In particular, his advancement of cross-laminated timber (CLT) modeling and production methods facilitates the adoption of this renewable material for application in buildings across the nation.

This is why his research also found support with funding from the National Science Foundation and the United States Department of Agriculture. He has also completed at least 1 review to date and authored 1 peer-reviewed journal article (first-authored), 5 peer-reviewed conference papers (2 of them first-authored), and a pending patent application, which have been cited a total of 33 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of structural engineering. His 8 years of work in the area helped him gather support from 4 recommending experts, one of whom said:

“In order for the United States to achieve cost-effective sustainability in the construction sector through the use of American domestic forest products, lower material costs and improved performances are required. Such benefits are achievable through the use of [the client’s] Adaptive Lumber Management system, which enables the use of cost-effect [sic] cross-laminated timber. [The client’s] work on this subject, therefore, carries significant value for the improved sustainability and cost-efficiency of the built environment of the United States.”

We are glad to have worked with him on this project to get him the national interest waiver and we wish him all the best for his future.
