Dr. Abbas Kazemi Amiri is a Research Associate at the University of Strathclyde. He was previously a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Technical University of Vienna (TU Wien), Austria, where he also obtained his PhD. Abbas Specialises in wind engineering and structural mechanics and dynamics. His research areas include earthquake and performance analysis of structures, bridge wind vibration mitigation, wind load identification, vibration testing and operational modal analysis as well as fatigue damage and residual life predication. He has an ample experience of cross-disciplinary research activities since the time of his PhD through working with fellow colleagues with engineering and non-engineering scientific backgrounds in his doctoral college. Abbas joined the wind energy and control group at the University of Strathclyde in January 2018. Some of his current research topics include the investigation of wind turbine tower lifetime extension potential, structural analysis of X-Rotor wind turbine blades and support structure, and structural analysis of acting loads on main bearing of wind turbine drivetrains. He has published his research results in quality scientific journals, and has been continuously presenting in technical international conferences and peer reviewing for several journals. Abbas has been awarded several grants, including a four-year PhD full fund and PhD abroad research fund, both granted by Austrian Science Fund (FWF), being a visiting scholar in wind engineering and energy centres at Ruhr University of Bochum, Germany and Kyoto University, Japan. Abbas has also been awarded several conference grants and most recently won the poster award in WindEurope exhibition and conference, Bilbao, Spain, 2019.
