Joint Meeting With RC Reno South
 
Dr. Sherif Elfass, Research Associate Professor - University of Nevada, Reno
 
 "Experimental and analytical studies of seismic performance of foundations."
 
 
Dr. Sherif Elfass
Dr. Elfass's  research areas of interest: 
  • Experimental and analytical studies of seismic performance of bridge foundations, shallow and deep foundations, soil-structure-interaction, pile and pile group response under axial loading, use of grout techniques to improve load carrying capacity of drilled shafts, deep foundation instrumentation and testing
  • Theoretical and experimental aspects of earthquake engineering and soil dynamics, undrained soil behavior and soil liquefaction
  • Characterization and the application of geosynthetics to improve soil performance
