Dr Walid Tizani is an associate professor at the Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, The University of Nottingham. He is the Head of the Centre for Structural Engineering and Informatics. His main research areas are the application of novel informatics in the areas of structural engineering and construction and the performance of steel connections. In the area of the use of informatics, his experience includes building information modelling, process and product modelling, process re-engineering, integrated and multi-aspect design and construction (nD modelling), and virtual prototyping. He used and developed techniques and algorithms using visualisation and VR, object-oriented and knowledge-based technologies. He researched in the area of construction-led design, economic-led design, information modelling for the sustainability appraisal of buildings and collaborative and integrated approach to design and construction. In the area of structural steelwork connections, he devised moment-resisting blind-bolting technologies to concrete-filled columns. He researches in the area of the performance of connections using model and component-based approaches.
