Ziyad (Zee) Durón

Department Chair, Engineering, Harvey Mudd College

Dr. Ziyad H. Durón is the Jude and Eileen Laspa Professor of Engineering at Harvey Mudd College. He is an expert in the full-scale field-testing of large structures. He has headed more than 20 field tests on a variety of structures, including concrete dams, buildings, bridges, tunnels and launch vehicles. He is a leader in the development of field-test procedures aimed at identifying response characteristics from low-level ambient vibrations which occur naturally in all structures. Currently, Dr. Durón is heading a team of researchers in the development of an early warning system altering fire fighters to impending structural collapse. His work has been funded by a number of national and international organizations, and he is a consultant to the Southern California Edison Company, British Columbia Hydro and Power, Caltrans and The Aerospace Corporation. His work has been published in The Journal of Dam Engineering, HydroReview Magazine, Experimental Technique, The Journal of Sound and Vibration, The International Journal on Hydro Power and Dams, and the Journal of Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering.

He joined the CCST Council in 2014.
