Overview

Sivakumar Kulasegaram received his Bachelor of Technology (Mechanical Engineering) degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, Master of Science in Computational Modelling and Finite Element in Engineering from Swansea University and Doctor of Philosophy from Swansea University.

Research Interests:

  • Advanced Numerical methods and Computational Mechanics
  • Development of Meshless (especially SPH) computational methods
  • Computational modelling of large strain and fracture in solids including composite materials
  • Modelling free surface flows including flow of self-compacting concrete
  • Simulation of structural response due to fast dynamics and high speed impact loading
