ABOUT THE PROFESSOR

After completing a civil engineering degree at Université de Sherbrooke in 1990, Mourad Karray obtained a Master in soil-structure interaction in 1994, and a Ph.D. in geotechnical engineering from the same university in 1999. From 1999 to 2002, he was project manager with Groupe Shellex inc., and then research associate with the geotechnical unit at Université de Sherbrooke. In 2005, he was named assistant professor in the civil engineering department at Université Sherbrooke. Mourad Karray is full professor since June 2015.


Mourad Karray’s research interests are centred on dynamic behaviour of soil, liquefaction, and soil-structure interaction. He is particularly interested in soil characterization methods based on Rayleigh waves. His research projects have led to the publication of more than 150 scientific papers. Mourad Karray has cumulated many practical experiences. He is the co-founder of “Études et Investigations Géowave Inc.”, a company derived from research conducted by Mr. Karray and which has allowed the development of the MMASW (Multi-Modal Analysis of Surface Waves) technique. This method was used successfully for many important projects in Québec and elsewhere in the world (Péribonka Dam, La Romaine Dam, Mont-Blanc in France, etc.). Mr. Karray has also contributed to the development of 1) the P-RAT (Piezo-electric-Ring-Actuator-Technique) method for Vs measurements in the laboratory and of 2) the TxSS (Triaxial Simple Shear Test) to evaluate the seismic strength of soils.
