NCKU President Awarded Distinguished Diplomat by ACOPNE

TAINAN, Taiwan --(Business Wire)--

National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) President Hwung-Hweng Hwung, a well-recognized hydraulic expert, was awarded the title of Distinguished Diplomat of Coastal Engineering by the Academy of Coastal, Ocean, Port and Navigation Engineers (ACOPNE) under the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to commemorate his outstanding achievements and contributions in the field of hydraulic and ocean engineering.

Hwung is the first ever Taiwanese scholar to be awarded this prestigious title and one of the two scholars to receive Distinguished Diplomat in 2013.

The title will be officially awarded to Hwung during the 34th International Conference on Coastal Engineering in June in Seoul, South Korea.

Hwung was recommended by Dr. Young C. Kim, professor emeritus of civil engineering at the California State University, Ls Angeles, and received unanimous approval from the ACOPNE committee.

Hwung has engaged in long-term research on ocean waves and has carried out many international collaboration projects with scholars from the United States of America, Russia, Japan, Australia, France and so on.

His journal articles have been published in international top tier academic journals. The results of his research on ocean engineering are also excellent, especially in non-linear wave dynamics which he pioneered and enjoys the highest status in academia at an international level.

Hwung has published more than 100 journal articles and 300 academic papers in well-known international academic journals and academic conferences respectively.

His pioneer study of non-linear wave dynamics phenomenon is a world leading research which he has published in books as book chapters, including one in the Handbook of Coastal and Ocean Engineering.

Apart from his outstanding academic achievements, Hwung has also made huge contributions to economic development and environmental protection.

He has dedicated approximately 30 years on efforts to develop and maintain Taiwanese coastal projects, especially research and testing on water inflow and outflow of Taiwan Power Company's nuclear and fossil-fuel power stations.

President Hwung modified the water pumping system at the Third Nuclear Power Plant as the original design of the system has led to the destruction of coral growth at South Bay. His modified design has successfully protected the ecosystem of the corals at nearby oceans.
