Welcome to Dr. Ferche’s Research Group!
We are focused on the development of modeling techniques tailored to simulate the response of reinforced concrete structures. Our goal is to unlock new possibilities for practical structural assessment of real-world reinforced concrete infrastructure. The work we conduct encompasses a dual approach involving both analytical and experimental investigations. Through these endeavors, we gain insight into the intricate mechanisms particular to reinforced concrete, contribute to the evolution of constitutive models, and validate the reliability of our numerical methodologies.
