Professor Chen, Weng-Pin

Division of Simulation and Testing

Dr. Chen received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Rice University, United States of America. Dr. Chen is a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical Engineering/Institute of Mechatronic Engineering at National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT) in Taipei City, Taiwan. Dr. Chen’s research field refers to biomedical engineering, biomechanics. His resarch laboratory has devoted in the research of biomechanics for a long period of time. The way he use is FEM and experiment. The field it concentrated on was the biomechanics of foot, orthopedics and dentistry. 

In the field of biomechanics of foot, he had infrared high speed camera to obtain the parameter of kinetics. Also, he also used the force plate and plantar pressure measurement system to obtain the plantar pressure and ground reaction force and imported the parameter of kinetics in CAE software. Then, the result of FEM was validated by ground reaction force obtained by force plate. For research of dentistry, he also focused on the design and analysis of the implant body and the instrument of root canal therapy.
