The HMSDC group is a cutting-edge research group whose technical expertise spans multidisciplinary areas including earthquake analysis, risk assessment, petrochemical/oil & gas plants, industrial piping systems, probabilistic analysis and hybrid simulations.  

Some of the research areas in which the group has recently been involved include:

  1. Risk assessment of petrochemical plants under extreme loading
  2. Seismic analysis of structural and industrial plant components
  3. Hybrid simulations of industrial plants and structures

The group possesses a rich publications history in international journals and conferences. It works in close collaborations with several European academic and industrial organizations by actively participating and coordinating large research projects funded by several national and International bodies including the following:
