Abieyuwa Aghayere, PhD
Aghayere studies structural systems and why they fail. He has written extensively about wood, concrete and steel construction and structural failure analysis. He has also commented in media stories about building collapses, the degradation and testing of infrastructure and the built environment. Aghayere's expertise contributed to media coverage of the Champlain Towers South condo collapse that won the Pulitzer Prize for breaking news coverage.
As a faculty member in Drexel’s College of Engineering and the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering, Aghayere’s teaching centers around building design and structural engineering systems. Aghayere’s books, “Structural Steel Design,” (3rd edition), “Reinforced Concrete Design” (9th edition) and “Structural Wood Design” (2nd edition) are considered definitive texts on these subjects. And he holds professional engineering licensure in Canada.
