About
Alireza Zabihi

Alireza is currently a PhD candidate in the department of civil and construction engineering at Swinburne University of Technology. His research focuses on seismic retrofitting of RC beam-column joint. Alireza’s background is in structural engineering and his research interests include earthquake engineering and structural dynamics.

Student project

Recent earthquake events worldwide have shown the poor performance of limited-ductile reinforced concrete frame buildings, whilst exterior beam-column joint is usually the weakest link in this kind of buildings. This research aims to offer a less-invasive and more architecturally favourable retrofitting technique to enhance the seismic behaviour of the beam-column joint and accordingly whole structure.
