Prairie View A&M University Chair


Dr. Ing Chang, P.E.

Dr. Chang has been a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Prairie View A&M University since 1970. Dr. Chang has a PhD in mechanical engineering from Rice University and is a registered professional engineer in the State of Texas. He has various industrial and governmental research experiences with the Monsanto Company, IBM Corporation, McDonnell Douglas Company, 3M Corporation, NASA Johnson Space Center, and others. Dr. Chang also has a very extensive academic background in the teaching of mechanical engineering courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level. He has performed research in combined - thermodynamic cycle analysis for geothermal energy applications, flow turbulence in wind energy research, fatigue analysis for large compressor blades used in wind tunnels, and thermal radiation modeling for low density non-equilibrium hypersonic flows and computational fluid dynamics studies of supersonic jet engine propulsion.

In recent years, since selection as the Massie Chair at Prairie View A&M University he has extended his research interest in the area of small engine emissions and air pollution studies. With the aid of the Massie chair program, a small engine emissions research laboratory was established at PVAMU. In the most recent years, Dr. Chang has also participated in research activities in the area of nuclear radiation detection with other faculties at PVAMU.

A Discussion with Dr. Chang on Program Goals

"The Massie Program continues to concentrate its effort in the two major areas of the development of the Small Engines Testing Facility and continued work on soil remediation. An outgrowth of small engine testing is the use of alternative fuels and alternative energy sources. In addition, the small engines emission research has expanded to include general air pollution research. The recent designation of Houston, Texas, as the Nation's highest air pollution city prompted the researchers at Prairie View to lend their expertise in testing air quality and looking for solutions to the problems of the University's adjoining county and neighbor."
