Personal Description

Dr. Sayahi is a researcher in the Research Group of Building Materials at the Division of Structural and Fire Engineering. He received his B.Sc. in Structural engineering in 2005 from Azad University, Iran. He also received his master degree in Mining and Geotechnical Engineering (2012), and his Ph.D. in structural and building materials engineering (2019), from Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden.

In his research, he especially focuses on early-age concrete cracking (e.g. plastic shrinkage cracking). His expertise includes various types of concrete such as vibrated concrete (VB), SCC, FRC, etc.
