This webinar will give an overview of the application of composite materials in construction and development of novel hybrid structures. First, we will look at the properties and performance of structural composites and classify their application in construction. We will elaborate then on reinforcement for concrete structural members and strengthening of existing structures using composite materials.

We will discuss design aspects, failure mechanisms and evaluation of capacity in these hybrid structures. The webinar will conclude with examples of hybrid structures and a summary of design variables for composites.

Presenter: Dr. Igor Shufrin, EIT Lecturer

Igor Shufrin started his career as a Civil engineer and worked in construction industry for several years in Russia. He was awarded a PhD in Structural Engineering from Technion- Israel Institute of Technology in 2007 and then moved to Australia to continue his research career at the University of Western Australia (UWA). He returned to Israel in 2016, where he worked as a Senior Lecturer at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev for 5 years. Currently, Dr Shufrin is a Research fellow at the University of Western Australia and is serving as a lecturer and a unit coordinator at Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT).
