Current research interests include:

  • Development of cohesive-zone models for the analysis of crack growth accounting for friction, plasticity, visco-elasticity, visco-plasticity, fatigue, with applications including FPR delamination, adhesive joints, rubber failure, dissection in biological tissue, damage and failure of rocks, concrete and reinforced concrete
  • Multi-scale numerical analysis of flexible risers
  • Plastic buckling of metal structures
  • Numerical and experimental analysis of lined pipes
  • Numerical analysis of RC beams retrofitted with FRP
