Research Interests:

  • Primary research interests are related to the behavior and design of Reinforced/ Prestressed Concrete, Steel, Hybrid and Composite Structures subjected to seismic and blast loads. Current research includes the following topics.
  • Development of smart sensors and structures for vibration control and damage detection.
  • Seismic shear of hollow reinforced concrete bridge piers.
  • Development of innovative structural systems (such as prestressed concrete box bridges with corrugated steel webs and reinforced concrete buildings with corrugated steel shearwalls) for seismic resistant design.
  • Implementation of new materials (such as high strength concrete, advanced composites, smart materials) into seismic design, retrofit and repair of buildings and bridges.
  • Development of analytical models for seismic hazard mitigation of engineering structures.
  • Dynamic experimental studies on materials, structural components and systems.
  • Constitutive models of reinforced and prestressed concrete subjected to shear or torsion.
  • Simulation and visualization of nuclear containments and concrete bridges for security.
  • Application of nanoscale technology to concrete structures.
  • Application of artificial intelligence to concrete structures.
