Dr. Hani Nassif

Dr. Hani Nassif, FACI, is an Associate Professor of Structural Engineering at Rutgers University. He teaches courses in the areas of bridge engineering and structural safety. His research includes the structural health monitoring and field-testing of bridges; structural concrete; creep and shrinkage behavior of high-strength concrete, and advanced cementitious materials. Dr. Nassif has several years of practical engineering experience as an engineer in the design of bridges, sewage treatment plants, and other civil engineering structures.

His research interests include non-destructive testing and structural health monitoring of bridges; structural safety and reliability-based design of buildings and bridges; finite element modeling and dynamic analysis of bridges; use of advanced cementitious composites in infrastructure applications; analysis of structural concrete members with unbonded (metallic and non-metallic) tendons; creep and shrinkage behavior of self-consolidating and high-perfromance concretes; bridge live load models using Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) truck weight data; and remote-sensing technology applied to post-disaster management. Dr. Nassif received his B.S. and M.S Civil Engineering from the University of Detroit and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan.
