description

Dr. Driver’s research interests lie primarily in the field of steel structures engineering, including member, connection, and system behaviour, as well as steel-concrete composite structures and rehabilitation of reinforced concrete structures using innovative steel solutions. His past research activity includes the development of torsional design provisions for wide-flange beams, which have been included in the Canadian steel design standard and cited in standard textbooks. He has also conducted research into optimizing the use of high-performance steel in bridge plate girders that has resulted in the development of a corrugated web configuration and an internally stiffened double-plate web.
