Radhouane Masmoudi

Radhouane Masmoudi, P.Eng., Is a professor in the Civil Engineering Department and past vice-dean for research at the faculty of engineering, of the Université de Sherbrooke. He holds a US-patent on high-performance hybrid structures (US Patent No. 9,637,923, 2017). He is the founder and director of the High Performance Hybrid Structures Laboratory (SHHP), a member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), a voting member of the ACI-440 Committee on Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) for Concrete and Chair of the ACI-440G Committee: Research, Development and Applications of FRP Reinforcements for Concrete. He was the recipient of the Bazinet Award of Excellence in Teaching by the student’s association (AGEG), and the Jury Prize of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction for the design of the a big architectural structure (L104m x H48m x W20 m) of the Caisse de dépôt (Montreal, Qc, Canada). His research contributions are mainly related to the design, testing, modeling and analysis of FRP reinforced concrete structures and structural shapes made of fiber-reinforced polymers filled with reinforced concrete. He is the author and co-author of more than 160 publications in peer-reviewed journals and conferences and has trained more than 40 highly qualified individuals (undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral fellows and research technicians). In addition to his research and teaching achievements, Prof. Masmoudi has founded the First's Faculty of Engineering’s Research-Bulletin (Founder and First Editor-in-chief), published twice/year, where the major research accomplishments and News at the Faculty of Engineering are presented:

Actual research interests

  • His research activities involve the use of advanced composites materials for the civil engineering and utility applications, including analysis, design and development of new Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) products. Dr. Masmoudi’s current research fields include: - Use of FRP tubes filled with concrete (CFFT) as a compression or flexural member for concrete structures - Use of recycled materials as fillers in CFFT - Use of FRP bars as reinforcement for concrete structures - Evaluation of thermal effects on FRP reinforced concrete structures - Use of FRP poles for utility applications - Finite element modeling of FRP reinforced concrete and composite materials structures
