Structural and Materials Engineering

Steel and concrete structure

Members of Ohio State's structural and materials engineering faculty are focused in several research areas, including:

  • CAE, smart bridges and structures, large-scale numerical
  • Static/dynamic characterization of composite materials
  • Analytical modeling and experimental evaluation of reinforced concrete structures, seismic loading, evaluation/retrofit methods
  • Performance enhancement of complex systems and critical infrastructures against extreme hazard scenarios
  • Soil mechanics modeling, beneficial use of coal fly ash
