Short CV
Dr. Demetris Nicolaides holds Diploma in Civil Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), as well as MSc in Structural Engineering from the Cardiff University, UK. From the same school he received his PhD in Civil Engineering in 2004, in the research area of fracture and fatigue of High-Performance Fibre Reinforced Cementitious Composites (HPFRCCs). He is currently an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at Frederick University in Cyprus. He teaches in under graduate and postgraduate programs of studies in the School of Engineering and particularly in Civil Engineering Department. He worked as a civil engineering consultant in Greece and Cyprus, being involved in large scale projects. He is a member of the American Concrete Institute, member of the Scientific and Technical Chamber of Cyprus (ETEK), member of the Association of Civil Engineers of Cyprus, approved Technical Expert of the Cyprus Certification Company (Concrete Industry, Cement, Aggregates, Lime, Mines), member of the National Technical Committees for the application of European Standards and Specifications for Construction Products in Cyprus and Chair of the National Technical Committee for Eurocode 2 (Concrete Structures). The focus of his most recent research has been in the following fields: • Concrete Technology with particular interest in: (a) the effective reuse of Construction and Demolition Wastes (CDW) and other industrial by-products in concrete mixtures, either as cement or aggregates replacements. • Geopolymer Concretes with particular interest in: (a) the valorization of several waste materials for the development of innovative building materials. • Technology of UHPFRCCs with particular interest in: (a) development, mechanical and durability properties and (b) protection of structures against blast and impact loading. • 3D Printing of Cementitious Materials, with particular interest in: (a) optimisation of the rheological characteristics and the interlayer properties of 3D printing concrete. • Safety of Structures, with particular interest in: (a) the development of a Center of Excellence concentrating on the structural safety of buildings and infrastructure, the disaster risk reduction and the post disaster management.
