Dr. Cosmin G. Chiorean is Professor (Full) of Structural Engineering at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (TUCN),Department of Structural Mechanics, Romania.

He graduated Faculty of Civil Engineering from TUCN (Civil Engineering section) in 1995 with MSc in Structural Engineering in 1996 and also Mathematics and Computer Science from Babes-Bolyai in 1999. In 2001 he got his Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania and since 2009 is Full Professor of Structural Engineering at TUCN. He spent two years (2002-2004) as a postdoctoral researcher at New University of Lisbon, Faculty of Science and Technology, Lisbon, Portugal. Since 2013 Prof. Chiorean is PhD supervisor in the field of Civil Engineering, he received his habilitation in civil engineering from Technical University of Construction, Bucharest, Romania.

Prof. Chiorean's research interests focus on improving the computational methods for design of civil structures, industrial buildings and bridges. His research includes both computational and experimental techniques with emphasis on the development and application of advanced numerical methods to solve problems relevant to structural and geotechnical engineering. His research findings are mainy implemented in the computer softwares NEFCAD (Nonlinear Inelastic Analysis of Frame Structures) and ASEP (Advanced Inelastic Analysis of Cross-Sections), respectively.

He has published 100+ papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings and has authored a book entitled "Software applications for nonlinear analysis of 3D frame structures". He is the main developer of a FE software packages GFAS (A Finite Element System for Geotechnical Applications) and RSL III 2D (Local Seismic Response for soils and structures)  products of Geostru Corporation (Italy).

Some of his representative publications are:
