John Melin Faculty Office
The late CEE alumnus and Professor Emeritus John W. Melin (MS 56, PhD 61) was a member of the CEE at Illinois faculty for more than 30 years. He specialized in structural dynamics and analysis of roof shells, and application of computers to civil engineering problems. One of his early achievements was the development of structural engineering software for analyzing guyed towers. Melin was a notable addition to the Construction Engineering and Management program, and hundreds of students learned the fenced bar chart scheduling technique he pioneered in his Construction Planning and Project Controls course. In addition to being a dedicated teacher, he was generous with his time and service to the university, department and community. Melin died in 1999. Additional funding is needed to fully furnish and equip this office.
