Personal profile

Research interests

Non-invasive hysteretic devices for earthquake-resistant structures; selection and scaling of accelerograms; seismic redesign of structures; nonlinear modelling of RC; timber-to-concrete, timber-to-ferrocement, FRC–to-steel and RC-to-FRC composite/hybrid members; antiseismic rocking columns.

 

Expanded list of research interests:

  • Structural Engineering, Structural Earthquake Engineering, Structural Dynamics
  • Development of low-cost hysteretic energy dissipation devices of low invasivity for passive control of earthquake resistant structures (yield and friction devices): Dissipative bracing and devices locally incorporated at beam-column joint regions
  • Practical procedures for selection and scaling of real earthquake accelerograms for nonlinear time-history analysis
  • Seismic redesign (repair, upgrading, retrofitting) of existing structures
  • Nonlinear analysis of earthquake-resistant structures
  • Cyclic modelling of confined concrete for seismic analysis
  • Development of modern composite & hybrid structural members (timber-to-concrete, timber-to-ferrocement, fibre reinforced concrete-to-steel and reinforced concrete-to-fibre reinforced concrete)
  • Seismic analysis of earthquake-resistant structures with rocking members
