CAREER SUMMARY
Dr. Cai is a registered Professional Engineer with solid knowledge in structural analysis and design of bridges. He has expertise in the seismic analysis and design of bridges (including linear and non-linear seismic analysis, multimodal analysis). He has experience in conventional bridge design, construction inspections and construction support service of bridges. As a structural engineer, he has worked on the rehabilitation of existing bridges/ Ramps as well as design of new ones. Bridge types he has dealt with includes bridges with major river crossings and viaducts crossing major highways. He also has expertise in preparation of design calculations, contract drawings, and bid quantity estimates, special engineering engineering/technical assistance in resolving complex structural problems arising during the construction phase of the projects. His combination of bridge design and construction experience makes him particularly well suited for a leadership role in constructability initiatives.
