Congratulations to Professor Filip Filippou on his appointment to the Byron and Elvira Nishkian Chair in Structural Engineering.
This is a major honor and a well-deserved recognition of Professor Filippou's eminence in the field of structural engineering.
Professor Filippou teaches and conducts research in nonlinear analysis of structures. He develops simulation models for the response of structural components of reinforced concrete, steel and steel-concrete composite structures under seismic loading conditions.
His models are widely used in OpenSees. Professor Filippou is also the developer of the nonlinear simulation toolbox FEDEASLab that is used around the world for teaching and research in the simulation of nonlinear structural response.
