"Earthquakes don't kill people, structures do"
I am a Graduate Student, currently pursuing my PhD in Structural and Earthquake Engineering from University at Buffalo, NY. This website contains my professional bio and will guide you through my work. My primary interest is in the area of Earthquake Engineering. Currently, I am working on seismic isolation of nuclear power plants as part of my PhD thesis. I have uploaded some of my research work to this website which might be useful to people having similar interest in Earthquake Engineering. I hope you would like it.
All the questions and comments can be directed to contact details provided in the contact section. If you have any professional proposals related to Earthquake Engineering which might be of interest to me, please feel free to contact me.
New Reports and Tools:
Modeling of seismic isolators in contemporary software programs: This report summarizes the modeling techniques of elastomeric and friction-based isolators in SAP2000, ABAQUS, LS-Dyna, and OpenSees
Seismic Isolation Design Web Application: Try my new web application for design of isolation system for bridges using elastomeric and lead rubber bearings.
