Associate Professor Vedat TOĞAN

Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Structural Engineering & Applied Mechanics

Dr. V. Togan, started his research work on optimization of 2D and 3D structural systems using genetic algorithms, leading to a M.Sc. degree. He also worked on the new techniques in order to enhance the performance of the genetic algorithms. Then he started his Ph.D. research work related to optimization of the structural system under the uncertainties. Having visiting Ruhr University of Bochum, Germany and Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, he has made more experience related to his PhD research.

He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Karadeniz Technical University in 2009 and he has continued the research works on the construction and project management, BIM, occupational health and safety, performance analyses of building design, optimization methods based on meta-heuristics, uncertainty analysis.
