Dimitrios Konstantinidis
Adjunct Assistant Professor, Civil Engineering

Dr. Konstantinidis’ research interests lie in the fields of earthquake engineering and engineering mechanics, with a primary focus on: (1) base isolation and structural control; (2) dynamic response of nonstructural components and systems (NCS) [also known as operational and functional components]; (3) seismic performance of critical facilities. These research areas are at the core of understanding and improving the performance of buildings and their NCS when subjected to earthquakes, and they are aimed at reducing economic losses and increasing the safety and resilience of communities. His work combines experimental testing, analytical modelling, and numerical simulation for a wide range of purposes: gaining a deep understanding of behavior; providing an accurate characterization of response; proposing innovative seismic protection solutions; and providing recommendations for improved design codes and guidelines.
