Biography

Biography

Madan Mehta, B.Arch., M.Bdg.Sc., Ph.D., P.E., is Professor of Architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington since 1985, and teaches courses in construction and structures. He served as the Graduate Advisor for the UT-Arlington School of Architecture for five years (1986-1991) and subsequently as the Director of Building Science. Prior to joining UT-Arlington, he was the Director of the Architectural Engineering Program at King Fahd University, Saudi Arabia. A licensed Professional Engineer (Texas), Fellow of the Indian Institute of Architects and Registered Architect, and Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, he has worked in India, Australia, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and the United States. With academic credentials in both architecture and engineering, he ran a comprehensive architecture/engineering (A/E) practice while working as full-time Professor in Delhi School of Architecture. He worked for a large general contractor in the United States during one-semester leave of absence from his teaching position in Delhi. Dr. Mehta is the author of several full-length books, a number of monographs and research papers on architectural engineering including building construction and architectural structures. His 1,000-page (9-in. x 12-in size) book on Building Construction, published by Pearson Inc., (the largest Publisher world wide) is one of the two most widely used books by practicing architects, students of architecture and construction engineering in North America. The third edition of this (full-color) book became available in bookstores in March 2017. Because of his academic and professional background in architecture as well as engineering, one part of Dr. Mehtas area of research/creative activity is to make architectural engineering subjects easily accessible to the students and practitioners of architecture. His books on architectural engineering, used widely in the academia and the profession, are testament to his contribution to divese topics in the field—building construction, architectural structures, acoustics and roofing. Another area of focus of Dr. Mehtas work is the contribution of research on roofing failures caused by extreme wind blow-offs and excessive rain loads. The research papers are the result of his consulting work as a forensic engineer, which have been presented at Roof Consultants Institute (RCI) conferences and annual conventions. He also teaches seminar couses to practicing architects and engineers on the subject—a requirement for them to retain their professional licence. Along with DFW-based Roof Consultant, Steve Patterson, P.E., Dr. Mehta has published several monographs under funding received from the RCI. He also serves as an expert reviewer of research proposals in his disciplinary expertise for funding by the prestigous National Science Foundation (NSF).
