  • NEWS FROM TECHNICAL COMMITTEE TC203 ON EARTHQUAKE GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING AND ASSOCIATED PROBLEMS 2012 YOUNG RESEARCHER AWARD IN EARTHQUAKE GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING :

    Assistant Professor IOANNIS ANASTASOPOULOS :

    The inaugural recipient of the Young Researcher Award in Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering is Dr. Ioannis Anastasopoulos,Assistant Professor in the School of Civil Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). His research spans many areas of geotechnical earthquake engineering, with a specific focus on soil–foundation–structure interaction (SFSI). His work on SFSI has included contributions both to the numerical and experimental aspects of this problem. He has been the driving force behind the development of a new Experimental Facility for Simulation of Soil-Structure Systems at NTUA, which includes a shaking table, a fault-rupture box, and a pushover facility.
