Research Statements
My research interest span the 3D simulation and experimental approach to the use of High Performance Fiber Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (HPFR/AAC) with a focus on architectural application. I am particularly interested in fiber reinforced concrete technology used to optimize some mechanical properties of final products. During my master’s degree, I applied this principle in my thesis research titled, “Behavior of Steel-Polypropylene Hybrid Fiber Reinforced Concrete”, which is focused on mechanical behavior of concrete elements based upon fiber types and volume percentage.
As a civil engineer, I am interest in investigating an alternative material with excellent properties as a substitute for ordinary concrete which is one of the key challenges that building engineers and architects tackle every day.
Literature
In Recent years, concrete as one of the oldest construction material, has been widely used in construction

More precisely, the focus of experimental tests is to predict:
- Mechanical properties: Compressive, flexural and tensile strength, modulus of elasticity and dry shrinkage
- Physical properties: microstructure and density
- Functional properties: durability, moisture transport, thermal and acoustic insulation.
The first experimental program will be performed to development of internal structure of AAC with application of new concrete type- High Performance concrete (HPC). The main properties of HPC are high strength, durability, stiffness, thermal resistance, toughness and above all, the final cost of material of the produced structural members
