Dr. George Markou, Assistant Professor at the Civil Engineering Department of the ALHOSN University, was recently invited to speak at the American University in Dubai where he delivered a seminar titled “Full-Scale 3D Modeling of Reinforced Concrete Structures”. The seminar took place at the AUD Campus. Dr. Markou presented to the Civil Engineering community of AUD the advantages of using the Finite Element Method in modeling reinforced concrete structures through the use of 3D solid elements. The case of the seismic assessment of bridges and buildings was addressed while the new ability of modeling the soil-structure interaction problem was also discussed.
At the end of the seminar, the AUD faculty and students had a Q&A session related to Dr. Markou’s research work and its potential application here in the UAE.
Prof. Elias (Chair of the Civil Engineering Department, AUD) thanked Dr. Markou for taking the time to present at AUD. It was followed by lunch on AUD Campus.
