Domain of activity:

  • Computational Mechanics;
  • Dynamic analysis of large systems;
  • Soil-Structure interaction.

Present research topics:

  • Dynamic response of railway tracks, considering the train-track-soil dynamic interaction;
  • Long-term behaviour of railway tracks, mainly focused on the ballast behaviour and representation;
  • Dynamic analysis of railway transitions;
  • Study of slab tracks .
