Personal Profile

Dr. Hassan joined Memorial University as an assistant professor in Civil (Structural) Engineering in August 2010. He was promoted to associate professor in 2015 and full professor in 2020. His research focuses on testing large-scale structural elements, made of advanced concrete materials, under gravity and seismic loading. Dr. Hassan’s research investigates the behaviour of concrete containing waste materials, by-products, and fibers in small-scale and large-scale concrete elements. Dr. Hassan is particularly recognized for his pioneering research on the use of waste-tyre rubber in construction technology to promote the development of eco-friendly buildings. His research findings in this area promoted the use of crumb and powder rubbers in concrete subjected to impact and seismic loading.

Research Highlights

• Structural behavior of large-scale reinforced concrete elements under static and seismic loading
• Ductility and cracking behavior of large-scale concrete elements
• Development and use of self-consolidating concrete, high performance concrete, and high strength concrete
• The use of steel and synthetic fibers in concrete mixtures
• The use of waste products and mineral admixtures in concrete mixtures
• Service life prediction of concrete structures
