research overview

  • Professor Saouma’s research interests include: 1. Computer (finite element) modeling of concrete material degradation (aging, corrosion) and of major infrastructures (dams and nuclear reactors in particular) 2. Theoretical, experimental and computational fracture mechanics as applied to various materials 3. Innovative (concrete) material testing, and large scale dynamic testing of structural components (real time hybrid simulation) 4. Interaction of earthquake and culture (myths, religion, art) 5. Performance based engineering 6. Hand based analysis of historic iconic structures; 7. Arches and Shells.
