BSc, PhD (Civil and Geotechnical Engineering)
Dr. Litkouhi is the Chairman and founding partner of SES, a company he formed in 1982. He has over 40 years’ of experience in a broad range of geotechnical engineering areas such as geotechnical investigation, dam grouting, slope stability and ground improvement. He obtained his PhD degree from Queens Mary College of London in 1979 , his research studied the pile behavior for fixed off-shore platform in North Sea.
Dr. Litkouhi has undertaken geotechnical studies for over 200 dam projects in Iran. Under his leadership, the firm has successfully completed many dam grouting projects including watertightening of Maroun Dam which is known for its challenging karstic rock formation. His background has led him to become a member of Iranian committee on Large Dams and Iranian Geotechnical Society. In 2006 he was officially honored as prominent figure in dam construction in Iran.
From late 80s’ he expanded the firm to become a pioneer in design and construction of various ground improvement techniques and stabilization methods for deep excavations. Many large scale ground improvement projects have been successfully completed under his supervision. He is currently a president of Iranian Ground Improvement committee.
