Personal profile

Approach to teaching

Dr Andreas Lampropoulos is a Principal Lecturer in Civil Engineering at the University of Brighton. He obtained his Diploma (2003), MSc (2005) and PhD (2010) degrees in Civil Engineering (Structural Division) from the University of Patras in Greece. Following his PhD studies, Dr Lampropoulos was appointed as Research Associate at the University of Liverpool (2011-2012) and as Lecturer (2012), Senior Lecturer (2014) and Principal Lecturer (2018) at the University of Brighton.

Dr Lampropoulos is the Course Leader for BEng/MEng Civil Engineering Courses and he is the module leader of 'CE512-Concrete Technology and Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures’, and ‘CNM23-Repair and Strengthening of Existing Reinforced Concrete Structures’.

He is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

 

How I like to teach

My teaching is focused on Construction Materials and Reinforced Concrete structures. I am always trying to present examples from real applications and to introduce blended learning with integrated lectures, laboratory work and online resources. A combination of traditional teaching methods with problem-solving lectures together with online material, electronic interactive teaching tools and laboratory practical work is what I am using in order to engage first year students and improve learning experience.

Research interests

Dr Lampropoulos is the Sustainability and Resilience Engineering (SuRE) Research Group Leader.

His main research agenda spans the areas of novel construction materials and seismic strengthening/retrofitting of existing structures.

He currently serves as the Chair of two International Task Groups (TGs) of the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE): TG1.1 ‘Improving Seismic Resilience of Reinforced Concrete Structures’ and TG5.5 ‘Conservation and Seismic strengthening/retrofitting of existing Unreinforced Masonry Structures’. TG 1.1 and 5.5 consist of experts (Academics and Practitioners) from more than 10 different countries worldwide (i.e. Austria, Bulgaria, Brazil, France, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand/Netherlands, Portugal, UK). In his capacity as the Chair of TG1.1 and TG5.5, Dr Lampropoulos is leading various types of activities (e.g. workshops and development of practical guides) and mainly to The main scope of these groups is to produce documents (i.e. IABSE Bulletins) that provide in-depth information to practicing engineers.

He is also a member of the International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib) Task Group 6.6 ‘Retrofitting of Precast Structures in Seismic Areas’ and the UK Mirror Group for Eurocode 8 Part 3 (BSI committee on EC8, B/525/8). Dr Lampropoulos is also member of the Institute of Concrete Technology (MICT).

Dr Lampropoulos is the Chair of the Outstanding Paper Award Committee (OPAC) of the IABSE 'Structural Engineering International' Journal

He has been member of the scientific committee of numerous International conferences and he has also been reviewer of more than 30 international journals in his field and reviewer of research proposals.

 

Areas of expertise

My main research agenda spans the areas of novel high performance materials and seismic strengthening/retrofitting of existing structures.

My main interests are focused on a wide range of cementitious materials such as Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC), Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) and cementitious materials reinforced with nanoparticles, while I am also working on cement-free concrete.

I am also working on the development of novel strengthening techniques for the structural upgrade of Reinforced Concrete (RC) and Unreinforced Masonry (URM) structures. I have conducted extensive experimental work and I have also worked on the development of numerical models for the simulation of the response of strengthened elements.

Scholarly biography

I was born in Patras (Greece) in 1981 where I always had an interest in Civil and Structural Engineering and especially in Earthquake Engineering since Patras lies in a high seismicity area, and from a very young age, I have experienced numerous strong earthquakes. I studied Civil Engineering at the University of Patras (5-years course) and I graduated in 2013 with a Diploma in Civil Engineering. Then I continued my studies at the University of Patras and I obtained my MSc (2005) and PhD (2010) degrees in Civil Engineering (Structural Division). Following my studies, I was appointed as Research Associate at the University of Liverpool (2011-2012) in the UK, where I worked on the development of novel construction materials. In 2012, I moved to the University of Brighton where I was appointed as Lecturer (2012), Senior Lecturer (2014) and Principal Lecturer (2018) in Civil Engineering.

Supervisory Interests

i) Devlopment of novel high performance cementitious materials, cement-free geopolymer concrete and use of novel high performance materials for the seismic strengthening/retrofitting of existing structures.

ii) Novel strengthening techniques for the structural upgrade of Reinforced Concrete (RC) and Unreinforced Masonry (URM) structures.
