Concordia Researcher Uses Advanced Modelling Software to Test Buildings For Earthquake Safety


With seismically active regions in the west and east of Canada, engineers are always looking for ways to improve the safety of dwellings in these areas and beyond.

Nader Aly, PhD candidate in the Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering at Concordia’s Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science, aims to make buildings more resilient and sustainable under extreme loading such as earthquakes.

His research centres on the structural performance of masonry components and systems like reinforced concrete.
