RC beams under blast load: Reliability and sensitivity analysis

The effects of blast loading on structures can be very dangerous: damages and failures are expected with serious threats to structural safety and human life. Materials stresses and strains are often pushed to the limit and the modelling of these phenomena can be very complex. In order to design blast-resistant structures it is very important to determine what are the key parameters of this problem.


EMI 2016 & PMC 2016 Conferences

The event to be held on May 22-25, 2016 at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, is actually two co-located conferences: the Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference 2016 (EMI 2016) and the Probabilistic Mechanics & Reliability Conference 2016 (PMC 2016). The event will be chaired by Prof. Sankaran Mahadevan and Prof. Caglar Oskay, both of Vanderbilt University.

Ph.D positions at University of Connecticut

Ph.D. student positions are available within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Connecticut. The research topic in Dr. Zhang's lab is interdisciplinary by nature, spanning over structural dynamics, fluid mechanics, finite element analysis, solid mechanics, and structural reliability. The positions will be filled in 2014 Spring and Fall.

Research background in the following areas is preferred: 

1. Fatigue and fracture of materials and structures;
