Shamim Sheikh

Background

Professor Shamim Sheikh’s current research is in the areas of seismic resistance of concrete structures and the use of fiber reinforced polymers as a replacement for steel to develop corrosion-free concrete structures. Steel corrosion is one of the biggest drains on the economy and our infrastructure resources. Professor Sheikh’s work is focused on seismic upgrade and rehabilitation of existing structures as well as building new structures for longer service life. This ongoing work has led to the development of better design procedures, more efficient structures, and a quicker turnaround time for the rehabilitation of structures needed by all associated stakeholders.
