Olympia Panagouli is an Associate Professor at the Civil Engineering Department, University of Thessaly in Greece. Her research interests include extension of classical Mechanics to take into account the fractal type structure, applications of principles and methods of classical and inequality Mechanics to the case of structures with fractal geometry, strength evaluation of cracked masonry structures, cracks in metallic structures, correlation of friction coefficient with the fractal dimension of interfaces, data compression by using fractal geometry, fractal evaluation of pavement skid resistance variations and the dynamic response of multidrum columns. She has published over 60 articles in scientific journals and conference proceedings.
