Overview


Alex Remennikov is a Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Wollongong within the School of Civil, Mining and Environmental Engineering. He received his PhD from the National University of Construction and Architecture, Kiev, Ukraine in 1994. After graduation, he was awarded a New Zealand Foundation for Science and Technology Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Canterbury to study response of steel braced buildings to severe earthquake loads. Alex joined the University of Wollongong in 2001. His research interests include analysis and design of structures subject to extreme loads, experimental investigation of structures under impact and blast loads, and the development of high-performance protective structures for critical infrastructure protection against effects of terrorist attacks. In addition, Alex has been involved in a variety of engineering consulting projects for both governmental organizations and private sector, involving protection of Australian Embassies, Government buildings and other critical infrastructure facilities against terrorist attacks.
