Teaching Assignment 2021-2022

  • CIVE 3203 Structural Analysis 1
  • CIVE 5705 Advanced Computational Modeling Strategies of Historic Buildings

• Advanced computational modeling: Implementation and application of discontinuum and continuum-based numerical methods to better understand the behavior and fracture mechanism of quasi-brittle construction materials and RC structural members.
• Structural analysis of historical masonry structures via data-driven modeling strategies to predict their short- and long-term performances under frequent and exceptional actions.
• Seismic assessment of modern and historic masonry/RC structures by integrating non-destructive techniques (NDT) into numerical tools via a multi-disciplinary approach.
• Thermo-mechanical coupling problems in concrete and masonry.
• Computational modeling of structured and unstructured discontinua (nano, micro, meso and macro level)
• Testing and simulation of sustainable building materials/structures.
• Soil-structure interaction phenomenon in bridges and retaining walls.
