Dr. Venkatesh Kodur
Dr. Kodur is a University Distinguished Professor and Director of Centre on Structural Fire Engineering and Diagnostics at Michigan State University. His research interests include: Evaluation of fire resistance of structural systems through large scale fire experiments and numerical modeling and Characterization of materials under high temperature. His research contributions has led to the development of fundamental understanding on the fire behavior of material and structural systems and also resulted in numerous design approaches and innovative and cost-effective solutions for enhancing fire-resistance of structural systems.
Venkatesh has published over 250 peer-reviewed papers in journals and conferences, and has given numerous invited key-note presentations. He is a professional engineer, Fellow of ASCE and ACI, Associate Editor of Journal of Structural Engineering, Chairman of ACI Fire Protection Committee, Chairman of ASCE-29 (Fire) Standards Committee and a member of UK-EPSRC College of Reviewers. He has won many awards including AISC Faculty Fellowship Award, NRCC (Government of Canada) Outstanding Achievement Award and NATO award for collaborative research. Dr. Kodur was part of the FEMA/ASCE Building Performance Assessment Team that studied the collapse of WTC buildings as a result of September 11 attack. » MSU Today [cached]
