CV


Dr. P. Dakoulas is Professor and Director of Soil Mechanics Laboratory. Between 1987-2000 he taught at Rice University (USA). His research focuses on Soil Dynamics, including the seismic behavior of dams and port facilities, cyclic behavior and liquefaction of soils, constitutive models, behavior of underground steel pipelines, advanced numerical analysis. He served as chair of the Earthquake Engineering & Soil Dynamics Committee of ASCE (1992-2000) and as member of the Editorial Board of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering. He received the Prakash Award (1995) and Hsieh Award from the Institution of Civil Engineers UK (2009). He has published numerous articles in international journals and conferences. He participated in several research projects and served as consultant on projects related to earth dams, bridges, gas pipeline systems, etc.
