Position: Professor and Civil Engineering Program Chair

Department: Academic Affairs – General

Kamran M. Nemati is the professor and chair of the Civil Engineering program at AUPP and a University of Arizona global lecturer. Prior to joining AUPP he was an Associate Professor in Construction Management and Adjunct Associate Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington in Seattle. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, where he was also a post-doctoral research fellow until August 1998. His Ph.D. thesis entitled: “Generation and Interaction of Compressive Stress-Induced Microcracks in Concrete.” His other graduate degrees are: Master of Science in Civil Engineering (Environmental Engineering); Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering (Geotechnical and Construction Engineering); and Master of City and Regional Planning (Urban Transportation Planning). He is a fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and American Concrete Institute (ACI), a registered professional engineer (P.E.) in California and several other states, and has more than fourteen years of consulting engineering experience mostly with AECOM in Oakland, California.

His main research interests include investigation of the behavior of plain and reinforced concrete materials, and, in particular, the development of improved concrete materials and technologies for structural applications. He has been active in the following research areas: fracture mechanics of concrete, application of stereology to analyze cracks in concrete, fracture analysis of concrete using scanning electron microscopy, effect of confinement on the fracture behavior of concrete, development of micromechanical models to simulate crack growth in concrete, accelerated construction techniques for pavements with Portland cement concrete, and using sea water as mixing water in concrete.
