Career Summary

Biography

Dr. Patrick Tang is a Senior Lecturer in the Discipline of Construction Management, in the School of Architecture and Built Environment at the University of Newcastle. Dr. Tang received a First Class Honours Degree in Building Surveying from the City University of Hong Kong in 1998. From the same university, Dr. Tang obtained his PhD in 2002. Before joining the University of Newcastle in 2009, Dr. Tang was an Instructor in the Department of Building and Construction at the City University of Hong Kong. His active research covers a wide range of subjects including, high performance concrete, structural lightweight concrete, building defects diagnosis, structural retrofitting and environmental sustainability, as well as, web-based teaching and learning. Dr. Patrick Tang is currently a Committee Member for the Building Diagnostic Division (BDD) of the Hong Kong Concrete Institute (HKCI).

Research Expertise
Dr. Patrick Tang specialises in concrete technology and design. For the last two years, Dr. Tang's research has been focused primarily on the areas of construction materials and structural retrofitting. Throughout this time, Dr. Tang has been involved in a number of research projects in collaboration with multiple academics and professions. This research has resulted in a considerable number of international journal papers and reports. While Dr. Tang's past studies have mainly focused on materials engineering, future studies will likely concentrate on the area of sustainable construction materials.

Administrative Expertise
Dr. Tang was the Program Convenor for the Bachelor of Construction Management (Building) at the University of Newcastle in 2010-12. His role was to take full responsibility for the management and quality of a program (and the courses offered within that program) leading to an award of the University. The main administrative duties included the program curriculum design, accreditation exercise, problem-based-teaching and learning implementation, credit application, writing annual program reports, student consultation and student activities coordination. Dr. Tang was also a member of Faculty Board and Faculty Teaching and Learning Committee in 2010-12 to give advice and recommendation on quality assurance for teaching, learning and research activities within the Faculty. To help arrange work opportunities for students, Dr. Tang is currently the discipline representative of Newcastle Industrial Scholarship Scheme (UNISS).

Collaborations
Dr. Patrick Tang has been involved in many research projects in collaboration with many academics and professions in Hong Kong.

During the last decade, self-healing of concrete has attracted so much attention in the research community as a promising tool toward more durable and sustainable infrastructures. Although various self-healing approaches have been vastly studied, employment of different assessment methods in these studies has made it difficult to compare the efficiency of various self-healing mechanisms. This paper presents a review of test methods which have been commonly utilized to assess the efficiency of self-healing mechanisms in concrete. Three broad categories of assessment methods are considered, namely visualization and determination, assessment of regained resistance and assessment of regained mechanical properties. Moreover, as a pathway toward standardized evaluation of self-healing mechanisms, various assessment techniques are evaluated against four proposed essential criteria - reliability, quality of results, operational considerations and in-situ applicability.

This paper presents the results of experimental investigation on macro encapsulated phase change material (PCM) incorporated in concrete walls of room models in real conditions. The focus of this study was to evaluate the effect of positions (externally bonded, laminated within and internally bonded) of macro encapsulated PCM in concrete walls on indoor temperatures and humidity levels of room models. Experimental results indicated that PCM models could adjust the indoor temperature and humility levels, however, its effectiveness was found to be greatly dependent on the position of PCM in concrete walls. The model with PCM laminated within the concrete walls showed the best temperature control and was effective in reducing the maximum temperature by up to 4 C. Whereas, the model with PCM placed on the inner side of concrete walls showed the best humidity control and reduced the relative humidity by 16% more than the control model. Therefore, it can be concluded that PCM models are thermally efficient and by reducing the relative humidity they provide comfortable and healthy indoor environment. Moreover, it is shown that the application of PCM in public housing flat of Hong Kong is economically visible with a recovery period of 11 years. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

2013Yang SQ, Peng T, Tang WC, Cui HZ, 'Study of surface modification of recycled aggregate and mechanical properties of the resulting concrete', Advanced Materials Research, 712-715 961-965 (2013) [C1]

In this paper, a method of aggregate surface modification using cement paste with RLP (Redispersable Latex Powder) was proposed aiming to improve properties of recycled aggregates and the resulting concrete. In this study, the cement pastes with different dosages of RLP on RA surface modification were used and the effects on the mechanical properties of the resulting concretes were studied. The experiments were carried in accordance with specifications and test methods in Building pebble and gravel (GB/T 14685-2001) and Ordinary concrete mechanics performance test method standard (GB/T 50081-2002). The test results showed that the properties of recycled aggregates were not as good as those of natural aggregates, thus resulting in poorer mechanical properties of the recycled aggregate concrete. By means of aggregate surface modification, the values of water absorption of the recycled aggregate were reduced and consequently the mechanical properties (i.e. compressive strength and elastic modulus) of the resulting recycled concrete were increased. This research provides some useful practical insights to improving mechanical properties of recycled aggregate concrete. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

On 29th January 2010, a tragedy took place before the blissful Chinese Lunar New Year. An old tenement building in Ma Tau Wai collapsed in a sudden, causing 2 deaths and 4 injuries. Not only did this raise people's concerns to investigate the reasons the collapse of the tenement building, it also raised their awareness on old tenement buildings as well as protecting them from collapsing. In view of this, this paper investigates on condensation and how it might shorten the service life of that old tenement building. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
