Kadir C. Sener, Ph.D., PE, is an Assistant Professor of Structural Engineering in the Civil Engineering Department at Auburn University since 2019. Prior to joining Auburn University, he was a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Purdue University, where he also earned his PhD in Civil Engineering in 2014.
His primary research interests are performing large-scale experimental and computational evaluations to investigate the behavior and design of concrete, steel, and timber structures subjected to extreme demands from seismic, fire, impactive-impulsive, and fatigue loading. In the past, he has led multiple research projects pertaining to various types of structures; including nuclear power plant, high-rise building, and bridge structures.
Dr. Sener mainly performs research on innovative hybrid structural systems that utilize novel materials/combinations for implementation in civil-structural…
