Selected Research Topics

Dynamics of railway bridges
Modeling of the strongly interacting system of railway bridge, track and subsoil crossed by high-speed train considering the environmental effect of freezing aims at the realistic reliability analysis of this system based on advanced stochastic simulations.

Dynamic response of cross-laminated wood elements
The research on cross-laminated wood elements (CLT) aims at a more realistic prediction of their dynamic response, since especially issues of acoustic behaviour are crucial for large volume applications.
Selected publications: [] [] []  []  []  [] 

Layered beams with interlayer slip
Beam theories are developed to predict the static and dynamic linear and nonlinear response of layered members where flexibility of the fasteners results in a relative displacement of the layers at the interfaces, taking into account initial curvatures or imperfections in the beam axis.

Hybrid control strategy
Innovative concepts for controlling the dynamic response of earthquake excited structures are designed and validated by numerical simulations and experimental tests, for a passive hybrid control strategy for base-isolated structures with Tuned Liquid Column Dampers or Tuned Mass Damper Inerter.

Continuous compaction control method
For the development and validation of continuous compaction control methods, models for the interaction system of oscillation roller and inelastic subsoil are developed.

Vertical peak floor amplification in seismic excited structures
The results of our research show that the vertical peak floor amplification in seismic excited structures can be significant, an outcome in contradiction to the current state of knowledge.

Genetic algorithms and machine learning techniques in earthquake engineering
Application of genetic algorithms, multi-objective optimization, and physics-based machine learning techniques for the development of novel ground motion selection approaches, large-scale investigations on scaling of ground-motions, and rapid seismic response prediction
