Prof Anastasios Sextos, Professor of Earthquake Engineering, Head of Earthquake and Geotechnical Engineering Research Group, University of Bristol
He is also the Director of the UKCRIC National Facility for Soil-Structure Interaction (SoFSI) National Soil-Foundation-Structure Interaction Laboratory | UKCRIC
"Innovation in earthquake engineering for smart and resilient infrastructure"
Anastasios’s research contributions are in the areas of computational and experimental earthquake engineering, seismic design and assessment of bridges, dynamic soil-structure interaction, seismic risk of critical industrial facilities and pipelines, resilience of roadway, lifeline networks and communities to natural hazards, selection of realistic earthquake ground motion scenarios including multiple-support excitation of extended structures, smart structures, multi-resolution distributed simulations & hybrid testing, and structural health monitoring.
The UKCRIC Soil-Foundation-Structure-Interaction Laboratory is a state of the art facility designed to enable research into the structural-geotechnical boundary, supporting the UKCRIC mission to underpin the renewal, sustainment and improvement of infrastructure and cities in the UK and elsewhere.
