Ken Siva Sivakumaran
Professor, 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.
