Personal profile

Dr. Dichuan Zhang obtained his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Arizona. Dr. Zhang’s research has focused on improving safety and reliability for reinforced concrete structures under extreme loads such as earthquakes and blast using state-of-art analytical and experimental integrated research methods. He has conducted thousands of analytical simulations for building structures using nonlinear dynamic methods and has been involved in several large-scale structural experiments including two shake table tests and one hybrid test.
