Dr. Erkan Oterkus is a senior lecturer (associate professor) in the department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering of University of Strathclyde. He is also leading Peridynamics, Multiscale, Multiphysics Analysis of materials and structures (PMMA) research group. He received his PhD from University of Arizona, USA and was a researcher at NASA Langley Research Center, USA before joining University of Strathclyde. His research is mainly focused on computational mechanics of materials and structures by using some of the state-of-the-art techniques including peridynamics and inverse finite element method. Some of his recent research is focusing on multiscale modelling of stress corrosion cracking, underwater shock response of marine composite structures, failure analysis of electronic packages, collision and grounding of ships and real-time monitoring of ship structures. His research has been supported by various organizations including European Union, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), Samsung Electronics, Lloyd’s Register, KIAT and Tubitak. He is the co-author of numerous publications including the first of book on peridynamics, journal and conference papers.
