Dr. Shadi Saadeh is a faculty of civil engineering at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) since 2007. Dr Saadeh worked for Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) 2003-2005 and Louisiana Transportation Research Center (LTRC) 2006-2007. He received his B.Sc. in civil engineering from University of Jordan (1997), M.Sc. in civil engineering from Washington State University (2002), and Ph.D. in civil engineering from Texas A & M University (2005).
Dr Saadeh’s research focuses on topics directly related to granular materials, including asphalt mixes and its constituents. His main areas of research are experimental characterization of highway materials, constitutive modeling of highway materials at the microstructural level, performance evaluation of highway infrastructure, flexible pavement design and analysis, and experimental characterization of highway materials using X-ray computed tomography (CT), image analysis techniques, and mechanical testing.
Dr Saadeh has authored several refereed research papers in high quality engineering and scientific journals such as Journal of Transportation Research Board (TRB), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), Journal of the American Society for Civil Engineers (ASCE), Journal of the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists (AAPT), and Journal of Computational Materials Science.
