Prof Vasilis Sarhosis holds the Chair in Resilient Structures & Infrastructure at the School of Civil Engineering, University of Leeds. He has both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Leeds, and worked as a consultant Civil Engineer in the UK. 

His vision is to undertake multi-disciplinary research to quantify degradation and understand the long-term behaviour of existing ageing masonry structures. He works 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.
