Professor & Chair
Amit Kanvinde is interested in the seismic response and design of steel structures with an emphasis on understanding extreme limit states such as fracture, fatigue, and collapse. His research addresses structural performance at the material, component, as well as the building scales. This work involves combinations of experiments, computational simulation and analytical modeling. Visit the publications page for more details.
