Dr. Hakan Yalciner received his B.Sc. degree from Civil Engineering Department at European University of Lefke (EUL) with a high honor degree in 2005. Dr. Hakan Yalciner was a student assistant between 2003 and 2005 years. He worked at the same university as a research assistant between 2005-2007. At the same period, he worked in the Centre for Construction Innovation and Research at the same university. His researches in CIR included Information Technology, Knowledge Management, and Expert Systems in Construction. Between 2005 and 2007 he completed his MSc with thesis at European University of Lefke. On the other hand, he has studied in construction management and involved in a TUBITAK project in this field during his MSc studies. Dr. Hakan Yalciner received his PhD degree from Civil Engineering Department at Eastern Mediterranean University in Structural Engineering and Material Engineering programs in 2012. During his PhD education, he found an opportunity to join some experimental studies (strengthening of RC beams by FRP anchorage) at McMaster University in Canada under the supervision of Prof. Dr. A. Ghani Razaqpur. During his PhD education, he developed new corrosion models for the prediction of ultimate bond strength of un-corroded and corroded reinforcement bars as a function of concrete cover depths, concrete strength levels for different corrosion levels. Dr. Yalciner developed new corrosion models for the prediction of time-dependent seismic performance levels of reinforced concrete buildings. Although his PhD thesis focused on corrosion and seismic performance levels of reinforced concrete buildings, he found opportunity to study on other areas like repairing and strengthening of reinforced concrete buildings. He published different and journal papers on these subjects.
Dr. Hakan Yalciner is expert on corrosion, earthquake and blast load analysis. He is a member of ACI Committee on Corrosion Studies. Dr. Yalciner has been working at Erzincan University as an Earthquake Engineer.
