Research summary

His current research on structural safety and nonlinear dynamics has origins in his PhD work and it has been gaining depth and breadth through the continuation of this work, some of which is in collaboration with other members of the systems group and dynamics group.

The concept of vulnerability is applicable to all systems whether technical or social; however, recent work has shown that its usage differs. In the short term, he plans to examine the vulnerability of structures to dynamic progressive collapse using the concepts of energy. Considerations of non-linearity will provide new depth to vulnerability assessment of structures ...
