Dr. S. Muthulingam
S. Muthulingam completed bachelor degree (B.E., 2002) in Civil Engineering from Regional Engineering College, Trichy (now named as National Institute of Technology, Trichy) and master degree (M.Tech., 2005) in Structural Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. Further, he obtained doctoral degree (Ph.D., 2014) from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IITM). In recognition of his research work, he received an enhanced fellowship award to pursue post-doctoral research at IITM.
His research interests include topics related to non-uniform corrosion of rebars in concrete structures, fracture mechanics of materials, stochastic computational models for real-life applications, and probabilistic models for problems involving structures with significant dimensions. Moreover, he has strong background in diverse fields such as finite element mesh generation, error estimation, and distributed computing. His early years in graduate school were devoted to developing computing models for aeroelastic analysis of suspension bridges considering wind-structure interaction. He turned to the topic of his dissertation in 2010 after his involvement in teaching had run its course.
He has acquired solid teaching experience at various engineering institutes, first as a lecturer and later as an assistant professor for several courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels (e.g. Engineering Mechanics, Mechanics of Solids, Structural Analysis–I & II, Design of Concrete Structures, Advanced Design of Concrete Structures, Theory of Plates and Shells, Structural Dynamics, Finite Element Analysis, Computational Methods, Constitutive Models and Modes of Failure).
He has published/presented over 20 research articles in refereed International/National Journals/Conferences.
