Dr. Aryan Rezaei Rad
Dr. Aryan Rezaei Rad is a structural engineer and he was a member of the NCCR Digital Fabrication. Aryan studied Earthquake Engineering at Tehran Polytechnic, and Civil Engineering at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, where he earned his PhD in 2020. Aryan was engaged in the NCCR Digital Fabrication program as a PhD researcher from 2016 to 2020 and as a postdoctoral researcher from 2020 to 2022.
Aryan's areas of expertise include the sustainable design of structural systems, computer-aided engineering, simulation-based science and Finite Element analysis, nonlinear structural analysis, computer programming, computational package development in engineering and architecture, multi-scale experimental testing and prototyping, timber structures, and digital wood manufacturing and fabrication.
Spurred by developments in digital fabrication, there has been an increase in the application of sustainable self-interlocking connections in timber structures. Accordingly, reduced-order computational models suitable for complex geometries are being developed and will be integrated into the design of large-scale timber structures.
