Ken Siva Sivakumaran
Professor Emeritus, Civil Engineering

Structural steel engineering is Dr. Sivakumaran's area of expertise. Primary research involves the behaviour, analysis and design of steel structures in general and cold-formed steel structural elements in particular. Current investigations include; evaluation of impact of holes on the moment resistance of steel beams, development of reinforcement strategies for cold-formed steel joists having large opening in moment zone, shear zone, and web-crippling zone. His works deploy experimental, analytical and finite element method based simulations.
