Research

Dr. Hany El Naggar joined the Department of Civil Engineering at ALHOSN University on August 10, 2008. Prior to his academic appointment, Hany worked with Hatch Mott MacDonald in Mississauga, Ontario as Tunnel Specialist.

Dr. El Naggar is a Structural Engineer with 12 years experience in civil construction, structural and geotechnical engineering and research. He has participated in several structural and geotechnical investigations, and is experienced in tunnel design and foundation design. Hany’s research involves the behaviour of concrete tunnel linings in soft ground and rock; with emphasis on seismic considerations and the effects of liner degradation. For five years, he worked with the Geotechnical Research Centre (GRC) at the University of Western Ontario where he was involved in a number of research projects. In collaboration with Ontario Concrete Pipe Association (OCPA), Dr. El Naggar developed an innovative â€کcellular’ precast concrete pipe with a continuous void system in the form of multiple, small diameter longitudinal conduits used to house telecommunication lines (e.g. fibre optic cables). The pipe can also be used to house prestressing tendons, enabling installation using pull-in-place trenchless construction methods (such as pipe bursting). Hany has several publications in refereed journals and conferences, has developed closed form solutions for the moments and thrusts in jointed and un-jointed composite lining systems in elastic soil or rock, and performed detailed numerical modeling of behaviour of underground structures.
