Research area

Modern engineering practice relies on advanced computer models to assess the performance of structures. This is the field of computational structural analysis, and is a core expertise of the Department of Structural Engineering and Building Materials at Ghent University. The construction sector is responsible for a significant contribution to CO2 emissions, particularly due to the amount of material and energy resources required to produce and maintain the built environment. Besides the developments towards more environmentally friendly solutions (e.g. recycling of concrete), the use of advanced methods of structural design and assessment, such as nonlinear FEM, has been identified as one of the key factors to reduce the potential waste of material resources.

Recent results

My current role at Ghent University is visiting professor, with the responsibility of the course “FEM and Constitutive Material Laws in Structural Engineering”

PhD supervision

My current role at the University of Ghent does not involve the supervision of PhD students.
