Research interests

Dr. Schrefler’s research addresses the fundamental aspects of applied mechanics, large scale computation, and diverse applications to problems of practical interest. His contributions to structural and materials mechanics include the pseudo three-dimensional analysis of tall buildings, variable thickness plates, cable structures and related stability problems, membranes and wrinkling, asymptotic theory of homogenization with second order and boundary layer correctors, hierarchical and concurrent multi scale methods, thermo-electro-mechanical contact, and use of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) as constitutive models and for parameter identification for symbolic constitutive models.
