Research

During Dr Jonaidi's research and industry professions, he has been involved in analysis and design of complex structural projects such as:

  • Modeling and analysis of high-rise buildings,
  • Analysis and design of steel structures,
  • Floor vibration for concrete slabs and pedestrian bridges,
  • Serviceability vibration analysis of high-rise buildings under wind effect,
  • Earthquake Engineering,
  • Design of post tensioned concrete structures.

He also used Finite Element Analysis for:

  • Nonlinear and Buckling analysis of silos and thin-walled members,
  • Temperature effects on concrete slabs,
  • Industrial concrete pavements,
  • Analysis of long span spatial steel structures,
  • Analysis of Glazing facade and so on.

Furthermore, Dr. Jonaidi has experience in: Below grade shoring walls using soil nails and ground post-tensioned anchors, retrofit of concrete structures using Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP), and the strengthening of structures to resist progressive collapse.

Currently, his research projects are related to:

  • Experimental research and FEA modeling of post-tensioned slab-wall release mechanism, With Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering students, KSU.
  • Research on the properties, such as resilience and compression of different foams used in the Bench Press. With Dr. Michael Hales, from Department of Health Promotion & Physical Education, and Dr. John Johnson, the Department of Exercise Science and Sport Management, KSU.
  • CANL entrepreneurship in sustainable construction with Drs: Keyvanfar, Jiang, Meadati, and Shafaghat, KSU.
  • Mathematical and Finite Element Analysis of bridge vibration, With Dr. Nasseri, Mechanical Engineering Department, KSU.
