WELCOME TO THE GERASIMIDIS RESEARCH GROUP

Welcome to the Gerasimidis research group at UMass, Amherst. We are interested in numerical, analytical and experimental methods to describe the stability of structural systems across scales. Our interests lie research interests lie in the areas of structural stability, thin-walled structures, nano- and micromechanics, new architected metamaterials, infrastructure resilience, structural systems and energy structures. Other areas of research are infrastructure resilience, structural response of critical infrastructure systems subjected to extreme-loading events in urban regions, resilient-oriented structural design approaches, damage propagation and structural response of damaged structures covering a broad spectrum of structural behavior.

ACTIVE RESEARCH PROJECTS

Structural stability of architected metamaterials in the nano-scale

Inelastic buckling of cylindrical shells under bending
