Dr Vasilis Sarhosis is an Associate Professor in Structural Engineering at the School of Civil Engineering, University of Leeds. He holds both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Leeds, and worked as a consultant Civil Engineer in the UK. 

My vision is to undertake multi-disciplinary research to quantify degradation and understand the long-term behaviour of existing ageing masonry structures. I work together with industry to develop technologies and tools to reduce maintenance demands and improve the life-span of ageing masonry structures.

My latest research

We have developed a discontinuous approach to simulate the non-linear dynamic behaviour of the civic clock tower of Rotella, in the province of Ascoli Piceno (Italy). The numerical results highlighted the progressive damage under dynamic actions.

A detailed micro-modelling approach to represent the micro-structure of masonry assemblages proposed. Observations provided here reveal new insight into the fracture mechanics of masonry in compression.
