Professor, The City College of New York
Professor Anil Agrawal is currently a Professor in Civil Engineering at the City College of New York. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. He is Editor-in-Chief for the ASCE Journal of Bridge Engineering. His research interest lies in structural control systems, blast and vehicular impact on bridges, and safety of long span bridges.
Professor Agrawal is currently involved in structural control systems research, such as passive dampers, tuned mass dampers, active/hybrid and semi-active control systems, have been widely accepted as effective means for protection of civil engineering structures against earthquakes and wind loads. While many structural control devices and control algorithms have been proposed for such applications, a systematic study to investigate advantages and disadvantages of these devices and algorithms is yet to be conducted. The objectives of benchmark studies are to make direct comparisons between performance of devices and algorithms using a particular benchmark structure, a set of external excitations and a set of performance criteria. Such studies are important for successful development of structural control devices and algorithms, and resolve issues that are critical in practical applications of structural control systems.
