About the Presenter: Faizul M. Mohee, P.Eng. Ph.D. is currently wfaizulorking as a Lead Civil/ Structural Engineer in Terrestrial Energy in Oakville. He is working in their new molten salt nuclear power plant project. He earlier completed his Ph.D. at University of Waterloo in Civil Engineering (major in Structural/ Materials) and Masters at University of Toronto. He is a licensed P.Eng. in Ontario and a certified project manager (PMP) and a LEED GA. He earlier won Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE)’s Presidents Young Professional Award in 2014 and the prestigious NSERC PGS-D3 scholarship in 2012. Before Terrestrial Energy, he worked at HATCH, WSP, EnergySolutions and PowerGrid. He worked in numerous nuclear, mining and tall building projects to date.

Synopsis of the Topic: The seminar will provide different types of advanced composite materials (e.g. carbon FRP, glass FRP, basalt FRP, FRP rods, FRP plates, FRP sheets, FRP stirrups) and will discuss the applications of these materials in different engineering (e.g. civil, mechanical, aerospace, biomedical, naval) applications.  


This seminar will also present the development, analysis and experimental investigation of three innovative, easy-to-install, low cost, epoxy-free, mechanical, friction-based, compact, high-strength, pre-stressing anchors for CFRP plates. The novel CFRP plate anchors were designed and analyzed by means of: (1) 3-D printing, (2) experimental friction tests; (3) finite element numerical modelling using ABAQUS and ANSYS software; (4) mathematics-based analytical modelling; and (5) experimental investigations of the anchor prototypes.
