Research Interests

The research topics can be divided into the following key research lines:

  • Improvement of conventional force-based seismic design procedures for conventional and innovative dual systems (steel/steel and steel/concrete).
  • Development of new generation displacement-based seismic design methodologies for steel and composite structures.
  • Improvement of numerical modelling and analysis procedures used in seismic performance assessment.
  • Retrofitting of RC structures with steel elements.

In addition to the topics listed above the group is actively involved in the development of new web-based applications to aid researchers and practicioners on their daily routines.
