About Assoc.Prfo.Dr.Farzad Hejazi
Farzad was born on 1977 and after high school, he started his bachelor of Civil Engineering in 1995. Thereafter, he pursued Master of Science (MSc) in Structural Engineering in 2003. The topic of his MSc thesis was “Optimization of Structural Control System via intelligent techniques” under supervision of Professor Ali Sinayee and Professor Eisa Salajegheh in Kerman.
His working career started as expert of structural retrofitting and seismic rehabilitation in 2002 and he was working with Structures Retrofitting Consultations. Afterward, in 2003, he joined to IAU University as lecturer in Civil Engineering Department up to 2006. Simultaneously, he worked in Civil House Institution in Tehran, Iran Concrete Institute, Aria Sazeh Arg consultancy company and Behine Sazand Spoota Construction Company.
Since 2001 Farzad investigated on seismic response of buildings and structural control systems include of Active, Passive and Semi-Active controllers to protect the buildings during severe earthquake excitation. After occurrence of Bam Earthquake (2003), he made the extensive investigation about failure of buildings during ground motion and figure out the main cause of structural damage and use these experiences to retrofit and seismic rehabilitation of important structures. So, afterward he focused on development of Earthquake Energy Dissipation Systems using modern and advance technologies through numerical simulation and experimental testing and optimization the performance of structural controller using smart and intelligent system in order to diminish earthquake effect on structure and guarantee safety of building against natural disaster.
