Dr Riyadh Al-Ameri is a senior lecturer in Civil Engineering in the Faculty of Science Engineering and the Built Environment at Deakin University.
Dr Al-Ameri is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers Australia and a chartered structural engineer. He has more than 25 years of mixed academic and industrial experience. For more than 20 years he investigated the behaviour and strength of steel-composite concrete structures.
His current research is focused on the structural applications of composite materials and carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) for sustainable infrastructure. He is investigating the partial interaction behaviour of RC beams and slabs retrofitted with multi-layer CFRP to develop an advanced material for retrofitting civil infrastructures.
