Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Loizos Pelecanos is a Lecturer in Civil Engineering at the University of Bath. He joined the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering in July 2016. He graduated from Imperial College London with a MEng in Civil Engineering (2009) and a PhD in Computational Earthquake Engineering (2013). He subsequently worked for 3.5 years as a Post-doctoral Research Associate in Civil Engineering at the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) at the University of Cambridge.

Loizos’s research expertise is in Computational Mechanics & Dynamics.

His doctoral research work at Imperial College concentrated on computational seismic analysis of earth dams and included extensive static and dynamic nonlinear finite element analyses and studies of dynamic dam-reservoir interaction, for both concrete and earth dams, in particular during earthquakes.

His subsequent post-doctoral research work at Cambridge was concerned with innovative distributed fibre-optic sensing of civil structures and soil-structure interaction (SSI) problems, along with relevant numerical analysis using appropriate finite element models. He co-authored a textbook on fibre-optic sensing of civil infrastructure.
