Course Instructor

Professor Ian D. Moore, P.Eng., FCAE, FEIC

Professor Moore holds the Canada Research Chair in Infrastructure Engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering at Queen’s University at Kingston, Ontario. His more than 300 technical publications examine both conventional and trenchless installation and replacement of buried metal, concrete and thermoplastic pipes. Prof Moore is a member of various Editorial boards and ASTM, CSA, TRB and other technical committees. His work is incorporated in ASTM, AWWA, AASHTO, CSA and other North American and international codes of practice. Supported by NSERC and various industrial and government transportation and infrastructure agencies, Dr Moore’s research is directed towards clarifying limit states for new, repaired and replacement pipes and culverts. He is developing design methods to guide selection of cast in place and pulled in place polymer liners for culverts, sewers, and water pipes, as well as explaining the role of soil-pipe interaction and its influence on ground disturbance and pipe performance during pipe bursting and directional drilling.
