Academic and professional achievements
Professor Kabir Sadeghi has proposed four new formulas for Damage Index (Indicator) on Structures, Stress-Strain formulation for Confined Concrete under cyclic loading, two Macro-element non-linear (FEM) Simulation methods for analysis of reinforced concrete structures under cyclic and monotonic loading of biaxial bending and axial load. Two technical books were published by him, which are mainly references for marine and offshore structural engineers and also for Ph.D., and Master students. His experience and research fields are; Non-Linear Numerical Simulation for Reinforced Concrete, Marine and Offshore Structures. He is Member of Editorial Board of Journal of Economics and Engineering, Member of Editorial Board of International Journal of Coastal Engineering and Offshore Structures  and Program Committee Member of some Workshops and Conferences such as; ISEAIA 2013, WNSA2008 and CONECO2009.
Professor Sadeghi has received the award of the distinguished professor (PWUT, 1996) and appreciation letters from Iran minister of road and transportation in 1998 and 2004 and from Total Fina Elf Company in 2003. In September 2005 he joined Girne American University, faculty of Engineering. He is Head of Department of Civil Engineering.
