Personal profile

Research interests

  • Non-Linear analysis of structures (Buildings, Silos, Tunnels, Arches, Bridges, etc.) under different loading conditions (Monotonic, Cyclic, Dynamic).
  • Non-Linear behavior and FE modeling of structural materials (Steel, Reinforced Concrete, Fiber-Reinforced Concrete, Masonry, Fiber Reinforced Polymer FRP).
  • Rehabilitation and strengthening of structures.


Since 1994, Dr. Batikha has been teaching various courses related to Structural Engineering for both undergraduate and post-graduate students (e.g. Structural Analysis, Strength of Materials, Steel Structures, Concrete Structures, Composite and pre-stressed element, Seismic design). On the other hand, Dr. Batikha has guided a research work through supervision on both M.Sc. and Ph.D. students in different structural engineering fields.

In consultancy work, Dr Batikha has completed many high standard projects from 1994 till present time in different countries and different areas of materials (Cold-formed steel sections, Hot-Finished steel sections and Reinforced-Concrete sections) beside design and structural rehabilitation under earthquake actions.
