Research Focus: Voyiadjis’ primary research interest is in damage mechanics of metals and metal matrix composites with emphasis on the theoretical modeling and experimental correlation. Research activities of particular interest encompass macromechanical/micromechanical constitutive modeling, experimental procedure for quantification of crack densities, inelastic behavior, thermal effects, interfaces, damage, failure, fracture, and numerical modeling. His experience also includes work on modeling of cyclic plasticity for metals, refined theories for plates and shells, and numerical simulation of cone penetrometers and tunnel boring in clay soils.
