Mosleh Al-Shamrani graduated in Civil Engineering from King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and, following one year as teaching assistant in the Civil Engineering Department, undertook an M.Sc. followed by a Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder. For the M.Sc.  degree his research was in the area of limit plasticity and the topic of his Ph.D. involved the extension of an inviscid elastoplastic bounding surface model to become an elastoplastic-viscoplastic model capable of describing rheological behavior of anisotropic cohesive soils including strain rate effect, undrained creep rupture, and stress relaxation. Kachanov-type of damage mechanics was also implemented in the model for simulating undrained creep rupture. The model was implemented in a finite element program for modeling various boundary value problems in geotechnical engineering. Dr. Al-Shamrani was appointed as assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at King Saud University in 1992, and became a Professor in 2005. Current interests include Behavior of expansive and sabkha soils, soil-structure interaction, anisotropic and time-dependent behavior of cohesive soils, constitutive modeling, computational geomechanics, limit plasticity applied to geotechnical engineering stability problems, development of computer codes for geotechnical problems. He is the author or coauthor of over 40 peer reviewed papers. He has been principal or co-principal investigator on several research projects. Al-Shamrani's consulting experience during the past 16 years has involved several companies and governmental agencies. He has served as a member of the Structural Committee and a Chair of the Soils and Foundation Committee, Saudi Building Code. He has also served as Chairman of Research, Development, and Innovation Committee, Saudi Council of Engineers. Current interest involves planning, management, utilization, assessment of higher education facilities and campus physical environment and its influence on the image of the institution. Presently he serves as Supervisor and Chairman of Scientific Committee of the inaugurated Eng. Abdullah Bogshan Chair in Expansive Soils, and he serves as Technical Manager of Student Housing Renovation Project.
