Motivation of the Research Group:
To conduct advanced research and forward knowledge in advanced composite material, and it uses in structures. Understand dynamic structural behavior and response to earthquakes, as well as soil-structure in mega structures such as tunnels and bridges.
Group Research Activities, Expertise and Focus Points:
Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP): and applications (repair, strengthening both numerically and experimentally
Dynamic Structural Analysis: and applications (Seismic analysis – Pounding of Structures – base isolation for buildings and bridges)
Soil-Structure Interaction: and applications (Tunnels – effect of basements, consequently soil, on the dynamic behavior of structures)
