Srivastava Research Group


Back to top

Our research focuses on continuum-scale solid mechanics theories, models, and experiments for deformation, damage, time/rate-dependent and extreme environment response of engineering materials, structures, and mechanobiological systems. The research group has the following interconnected thrust areas:
(1) Coupled multi-physics material models
(2) Material deformation, damage and failure under extreme environments
(3) Mechanistic models and experiments for biomedical systems
(4) Integration of mechanics with AI
