Summary of Activities/Interests

Bone Functional Adaptation

Bones are optimal structures and we like optimal structures. We study bones from the perspective of optimal design. Our observations are subjected to mathematical analysis by matching them with optimality conditions.

Structural Optimization

Our research deals with non-compliant structures, compliant mechanisms, crashworthy structures, and structures for blast mitigation.
