报告题目：Concrete Filled FRP Tubes
报告人：Amir Fam，Professor, Department of Civil Engineering, Queen’s University
Dr. Fam’s expertise is in the area of structural engineering, including reinforced and prestressed concrete as well as applications of fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) in both new and retrofitted structures. In particular, he is known as an international leader in the area of FRP stay-in-place structural forms, including the concept of concrete filled FRP tubes. He is a Fellow of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineering (CSCE), Vice President, Treasurer and Fellow of the International Institute of FRP in Construction (IIFC), a recipient of the prestigious NSERC-Canada Discovery Accelerator Supplement Award, a recipient of the very prestigious T. Y. Lin Best Paper Award from Journal of Structural Engineering of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for his novel work on concrete-filled FRP tubes, recipient of the Ontario Early Researcher Award, and a recipient of the Chancellor’s Research Award of Queen’s University. Additionally, Dr. Fam is the chair of subcommittee 440-J (FRP Stay in Place Forms) of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the chair of the Advanced Composites Materials committee of CSCE. He is an Associate Editor of the Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering and the ASCE Journal of Composites for Construction.
