Seyed M. Hashemi

Dr. Seyed M. Hashemi is a professor at Ryerson University (Toronto, Canada), Department of Aerospace Engineering. His research revolves around developing novel analytical, semi-analytical and numerical models and mesh-reduction techniques in order to achieve higher convergence rates in the dynamic analysis of intact/defective, flexible, composite structural elements. Dr. Hashemi has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (SUT), Tehran/Iran (1990), and a Diplôme D’Études Profondis (DEA) en Mécanique from the Université de Lille I, Flandre Androit, Lille (1992), France. He received his Doctor of Philosophy in 1998 from Laval University, studying numerical modelling of blades and rotating beam-structures. In particular, this work focused on developing a highly convergent Dynamic Finite Element (DFE) method with applications to the vibration analysis of rotary blades and beam-structures. Then, he worked as a research associate in the Department of Mechanical Eng., Laval University, and subsequently joined University of Waterloo, where he worked on a variety of topics related to structural vibration analysis/modelling/control, including vibration control of a turbo-Prop engine, tall buildings, … . Dr Hashemi also collaborated with Kinesiology Department of University of Waterloo on several projects, namely passive/active vibration control of Parkinson tremors. Dr. Hashemi joined Ryerson University in September 2001, where he continues his research work on Finite Elements, DFE and other numerical methods in structural design, analysis and modelling. He has (co)-authored over 100 publications; some thirty journal papers, several chapters in books and edited volumes, and over seventy conference papers on DFE applications in the areas of structural dynamics, vibration, composites/sandwich beam-structures, and the modeling of MEMS devices. Dr. Hashemi is also an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Eng., University of Waterloo, Waterloo (ON, Canada), a licensed Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) in Ontario, Canada, member of Editorial board of The Transdisciplinary International Journal: Mathematical Problems in Engineering, Aerospace and Sciences (MESA), The International Journal of Vehicle Structures & Systems (JVSS), as well as several international conferences, and a member of AIAA.
