Dr. Mehrdad Mahoutian's experties includes microstructure analysis of concrete, durability of concrete, sustainability, CO2 sequestration and high performance concrete. In 2003, he demonstrated his interest in concrete by leading the "Concrete Cube" group, where he achieved success as a 2rd year undergraduate student to win the 3rd prize in the American Concrete Institute's concrete cube competition in Boston.

 

 

 

 

 

In his PhD program, as the holder of the most prestigious award from Government of Canada, Dr. Mahoutian was involved in a project dealing with one of the critical issues in the world: global warming and carbon dioxide emissions. Mehrdad studied the feasibility of waste materials in capturing and storing of carbon dioxide. He developed a technology to produce carbon-negative and clinker-free concrete products using carbon dioxide-activated slag.

Dr. Mahoutian has been involved in various service life assessment projects, such as investigating the durability of concrete buildings, assessing the durability of concrete dams and corrosion assessment of infrastructures located in severe environmental conditions during his career as a material engineer and project manager. Furthermore, he deeply investigated various types of concrete including a) SCC with different active and inert powders, admixtures and fibres, while focusing on optimizing rheological properties; b) lightweight aggregate concrete; and c) fiber reinforced concrete.

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to accomplishing various research and industrial projects, Dr. Mahoutian pationally shared his knowledge with students as a lecturer and teacher assistant. Dr. Mahoutian was a teaching assistant in University of Alberta and McGill University for 5 years. In 2014, he was honored to be nominated for the Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award at McGill University. Upon the completion of his first M.Sc. degree, due to Dr. Mahoutian's proven knowledge of concrete material science, he was appointed as a lecturer at Sadra University to teach the “Technology of Concrete-SAD E331” course. Over the past few years, Mehrdad was also active in reviewing scientific papers submitted to the peer-review journals.
