Project Title: 
Structural Engineering

Reinforced and prestressed concrete structural systems (buildings and bridges) are numerically modeled to extend the results of experiments to investigate a broader range of parameters. Recent projects included investigating the distribution of shear forces in prestressed concrete bridges and investigating the interaction between rocking wall systems and surrounding structural systems in buildings. Models are also being developed to design prestressed concrete bridge girders to avoid end cracking.
