Dr. Fang

Dr. Nick Z. Fang is an assistant professor in the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Texas, Arlington. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rice University. He has been working on surface water and groundwater problems for over ten years including floodplain studies, hydrologic/hydraulic modeling, water treatment, hydrodynamic simulation, storm water manageent modeling, and water quality assessment for a number of watersheds and areas in Texas, Florida, Connecticut, California, and Louisiana. Not only has he accomplished many projects in drainage modeling and design, but he has also actively worked in the area of hydrologic/hydraulic analysis for flood prediction and warning in real-time mode.

Research Areas

Surface and groundwater hydrology, geographical information, flood warning and alert systems, flood control and water quality strategies, hydro-logic and hydraulic modeling/design, storm water management, pipeline systems, open channel flow analysis inland flooding induced by severe storm surge, contaminant transport mechanisms in groundwater, aquifer remediation strategies and modeling, and 2-D and 3-D visualization of fluid modeling.
