Ahsan Kareem is the Robert M. Moran Professor of Engineering in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences (CEEES) at the University of Notre Dame. He is Director of the Nathaz Modeling Laboratory and served as the past Chair at the Department of CEEES at the University of Notre Dame.[1][2] He currently serves as the President of the International Association for Wind Engineering. He was also the former President of the American Association for Wind Engineering.[3][4] His fundamental contributions to aerodynamics and aeroelasticity has led to advances in the analysis, design and performance assessment of tall buildings and long span bridges.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12] He has conducted from wind tunnel modeling[13] to stochastic and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) based simulations and finally to the full-scale monitoring of some of the signature buildings[14][15] around the world including more recently Burj Khalifa.[16] It utilizes a novel “SmartSync” system featuring “Internet-of-Things” (IoT) concept with built in layers of intelligence for data management and analysis.[17][18] He has advanced models for damping in tall buildings and motion mitigation devices like tuned liquid dampers from design, prototype testing to post installation monitoring in buildings in the US and in the Pacific-rim.[19][20][21][22] His contributions towards database assisted design through a web-portal recommended in ASCE 7 is used worldwide for designing tall buildings.[23] More recently, his group has embarked on shape optimization[24][25] of tall buildings based on CFD with embedded topology optimization[26][27] to configure efficient and optimal structural system for super tall buildings and long span bridges.[28] This work through sensing, computational intelligence and control and actuation technologies is leading to the development of autonomously morphing structures like long span bridge decks and tall buildings.
